Additional info:
Comment 1 Jan Kratochvil 2010-05-12 11:33:33 EDT
OK, reproduced (with glibc-debuginfo.s390x).

It is a bit fragily test but not sure what to do with it to keep it meaningful:
There was:
set mb_reserve 10
s390x now uses 16204KB, I will increase it for example to:
set mb_reserve 40

qa_ack, please.
