Perhaps make sure that we are talking about same problem, before saying what
is true or false? Otherwise, we can both call each other liars. :)
Breakage was in January, PR was created in May, thus 5 (sorry, not 6) months.
Well, maybe somebody noticed it earlier, but I am not aware of any earlier
hmm, i can't find the PR or the original report off hand.
however, it came about 3 weeks after the GCC update in feb, about
1-2 weeks after the pthread_mutex_t change was made. i remember
it very well because GCC update was initially blamed.
ie, a user noticed this problem fairly quickly.
