 Hmm. Odd...

 Yeah, that's the first thing I thought of too. The backtrace suggests
 no threads but instead something OpenGL-related, but that doesn't make
 much sense.
 On the other hand, the backtrace also asserts that libglut was being
 called (and then calling into) libstdc++, which doesn't make any sense
 at all. Maybe that's an indication that the problem is libstdc++? Or
 maybe that's just gdb being insane.

 Well, I'd probably look into it if I still had a netbsd-4 machine, but
 I don't...
