Description of problem:
mozilla mail locks up when clicking on first unread mail from imap server
with glibc-2.3.2-45, but OK with glibc-2.3.2-41.  Smells like a thread problem.

apps are still live.   Can't close mozilla, but can kill it from other window.

Comment 3 John Ellson 2003-06-06 14:57:58 EDT
also broken in glibc-2.3.2-48
Comment 4 Joe Orton 2003-06-11 05:22:15 EDT
Mozilla appears to be completely unusable to me after upgrading from glibc-2.3.2-27.9.i686.rpm to glibc-2.3.2-48.i686.rpm.  It locks up after a minute of web browsing or so, strace gives:
# strace -p 23630
futex(0x400cfb1c, FUTEX_WAIT, 182836, NULL <unfinished ...>
Comment 5 Joe Orton 2003-06-11 05:26:55 EDT
