This is going to cause massive suck for Mozilla.  See the
URL for details.

(I believe this to be an XP bug, but haven't actually
checked on non-Intel platforms.  Also, I believe it affects
5.0 and 5.1 as well.)

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-07-28 06:12:59 UTC
The libdl.so from glibc 2.0.x is not thread safe, nor it is designed
to be made thread safe easily. At this point in time I can commit to
assistance to the mozilla developers for getting this issue fixed, but
I am unable to act as the main fixer. (yeah, a polite way of saying
that I am taking patches).

I can promise a glibc 2.0.x errata fix for redhat 5.2 once we get this
issue solved.
