Description of problem:
I run gdb xmms and I get the error below

dlopen failed on 'libthread_db.so.1' - /lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1: undefined
symbol: assert
GDB will not be able to debug pthreads.

This is after upgrading glibc to 2.3.1-30. Before I upgraded I had a similar
error about he same library in a different location and with a different
undefined symbol, which is why I upgraded.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install glibc-2.3.1-30
2. install gdb
3. install xmms
4. run startx
5. run gdb xmms

Actual Results:  dlopen failed on 'libthread_db.so.1' -
/lib/tls/libthread_db.so.1: undefined symbol: assert

Expected Results:  no error about the library and for it to be able to debu pthreads

Additional info:

This is a Phoebe system.
