Comment 1 Pedro Lamarão 2009-06-29 18:37:40 UTC
This bug seems to occur only when the -pthread argument to GCC is missing.
This argument is, of course, required to compile programs using pthreads.

I suppose that leaving the argument out yields "undefined behaviour".

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2009-07-08 08:51:35 UTC
Obviously if you use std::thread and don't link with -lpthread, it is a developer error.  We certainly don't want to link libstdc++ against -lpthread unconditionally, just because somebody might want to use std::thread.
