FYI: Michael's updated ld.so.tgz also fixes a similar bug in perl,
where linking against -lposix caused Perl to coredump if it called
(POSIX) rename(). I havent yet verified it fixes the similar problem
with a dynamically-linked tcsh, but from the twm symptoms, I'm
morally certain it will.
A source patch will be made available for other MIPS ports RSN.
