Prior to this update, a multi-threaded application, which invoked popen(3) internally, could cause a thread stall by FILE lock corruption. The application program waited for a FILE lock in glibc, but the lock seemed to be corrupted, which was caused by a race condition in the COW (Copy On Write) logic. With this update, the race condition was corrected and FILE lock corruption no longer occurs.
