This is why I suggested a no-pthread option that could be used to restore the 
current behavior (similar to the -static option that was added when dynamic

BTW, I quick test shows that /rescue/mv is three times faster than /bin/mv, yet 
I do not see /rescue/* being used in any of the shell scripts.
