I as able to reproduce the problem on a friend laptop (Sony VAIO with
Intel Core 2 CPU) ... In the mean time, no problem on my workstation
(Tyan S2885 with 2 Opterons 246 CPUs).
A simple test program only calling getpid() works if statically
linked, but crash otherwise.
Can you post your machine dmesg ?
