My whole machine is current with respect to today's Raw Hide.
jik:~!34> rpm -q gnumeric
jik:~!35> rpm --verify gnumeric

At this point it hangs.

twaugh said it worked with newer libc/kernel. Please verify when
the next beta comes out.
With glibc-2.3.1-34 and the current Raw Hide kernel at work, gnumeric now starts
up. However, at home with glibc-2.3.1-34 and a 2.4.20-ac2 kernel (i.e., no
NPTL), gnumeric continues to hang when I try to start it.
With the re0113.0 tree, gnumeric is working as expected:
However, going to push this issue back to assigned to get a ruling on the
behavior seen under a non-NPTL kernel.
Moving to glibc - I don't know if glibc is supposed to be working
in this case or not.
I am no longer convinced that this is a NPTL issue. I saw gnumeric hang at work
again this morning, i.e., on the machine which has the NPTL kernel and glibc. I
updated to the current Raw Hide and rebooted, and the hang went away. I don't
know whether the reboot or the update is what cured the problem.
Lately gnumeric was stuck with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 because of libc+linuxthreads
bug, which ought to be fixed in glibc-2.3.1-36.
