It was not the thread library, it was the fact that the Overnet
programmer decided to do the dumb thing and try to create new
directories using a trailing slash. In the earlier versions of NetBSD
(and it looks like 1.6.2 as well) NetBSD did/does not allow this
The fix to get overnet (and others) working was to either have the linux
emulation layer strip off the trailing slash before passing it to the
NetBSD kernel, or to make NetBSD natively allow trailing slashes in an
A patch to the linux emulation layer is available in kern/22038, right
