Based on talking with our FreeBSD guys at work, I got the impression
they are well aware of the problem.
Interestingly, it seems to only affect users on LinuxThreads. The
native FreeBSD threads implementation appears not to trigger the
problem. But there are so many problems with FreeBSD's native threads
that I'm not sure why you'd want to use them...
