Description Adam Spanberger 2005-03-11 17:18:01 EST
Description of problem:
I have a simple application that creates pthreads.  The behavior is the same 
whether the thread is detached or whether I try to join to it.  When I run the 
application from a normal terminal, it works as expected.  If I try to run it 
in its own xterm (ie. xterm -e appName), the xterm dies as soon as the first 
thread exits.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Very.  I was also able to reproduce it by running the application using a 
dejagnu script.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gcc threadTest.c -lpthread 
2.xterm -e ./a.out
Actual results:
xterm exits after first thread exits.

Expected results:
xterm exits when all five threads of the parent process exit

Additional info:
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL <= 2.4.19 works
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL >= 2.4.20 does not work

I'm providing a very simple test case that demonstrates the problem.

is this repeatable with the errata kernel ?
2.6.9-1.667 is ancient now.

Updating to 2.6.10-1.770 fixed the problem.  Thanks for your help.
