 NetBSD's pthread implementation has many internal consistency checks,
 that other thread implementations (like Linux) don't have and don't
 complain about related errors.
 That thread-related problems do exist in OpenOffice is known, so it
 depends on the exact circumstances what can be done, and is worth the
 Btw, do you set PTHREAD_DIAGASSERT in your shell? There's already the
 standard setting in the startup script to ignore all pthread-related
 errors it can, but this only takes effect if this variable is unset.
