Description of problem:java applet causes mozilla to crash 
after up2date kernel 2.4.20-9.i686 and glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686 several programs
would not work, wine, Realplayer, StarOffice, Sun Java, etc., that worked before
the update. Replacing glibc.*.i686 with glibc.*.i386, All the programs started
working again, except java.    

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):initial release
RedHat 9.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.update to kernel-2.4.20-9*i686 glibc-2.3.2-27.9*i686 
2.download and install SunJava 1.4.1
3.logon a website that uses java-applet
Actual results:browser crashes, mozilla and Netscape 7.02

Expected results:

Comment 1 Andre 2003-06-25 17:17:25 EDT
I can confirm that with glibc-2.3.2-27.9 (i686) and kernel-2.4.20-18.9 (athlon)
RealPlayer-8.0-1 no longer functions (I just upgraded to RedHat 9 with all the
lastest updates).  It seems to be hanging in a futex call:

 open("/u/andre/.RealNetworks_RealShared_00", O_RDONLY) = 3
 flock(3, LOCK_EX)                       = 0
 stat64("/u/andre/.RealNetworks_RealShared_00", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0644,
st_size=105, ...}) = 0
 futex(0x817a0f0, FUTEX_WAIT, -127, NULL <unfinished ...>

Is there a workaround for this?  Thanks - andre

Ooops.  I should RTFM.  Using LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1 seems to work.

Repeat after bugzilla reload:

This is the expected behavior.  Old JREs don't work with NPTL.  Only Sun's 1.4.2
JRE works so far, more to come in the future.  No bug.
