I agree, the issue, whatever it was that nia saw, is far more
likely caused by the namespace changes influencing just what
functions are getting called, in an unintended way, than by
anything related to threading.

Can we have threads back the way they were last week?  That
is not race around adding -lpthread to every static link
that exists, most likely breaking some size limits along the

Then, once things build again, if there is a problem, we can
