pthread_create does not return..
Using the glibc 2.1.1, after so many threads are created, pthread_create
does not return - it just hangs. The pthread FAQ suggested upgrading to
glibc 2.1.2, but this didn't change the bug. This is a known bug in the
glibc 2.1.x now. Does RedHat have a fix?

How many processes? I suspect you run out into the limits of maximum processes
per user.
