Re: rbtree problems in libpthread said:

Here is a program which exhibits the bug for me.
Perhaps une could be a bit more creative finding
malloc() sizes -- the purpose is to stir the address
space so that the threads are not allocated
with equal distances. The stack size setting has
probably some influence too. Mine is default afaict.
(The application where this was a fatal bug - the
"totem" media player with some plugins - had
only 9 threads running.)

Could someone test this on the 5.0 branch?

best regards
