That's not the question I was thinking of, but yeah, that is the problem.

I was thinking it was a bug in your glibc, but never mind, it's not. It's that.

Upgrading to glibc 2.3 won't necessarily help, either -- you need the end users to all have the TLS libGL installed on their systems, and that's a function of the kernel and glibc both, I think. I believe that no distros other than RH 9 need the TLS libGL (though I'm building a Linux From Scratch with glibc 2.3.2 and kernel 2.4.20 -- glibc has TLS, but the kernel won't -- to see which libs the installer uses for that kind of setup), because only RH9 uses the kernel implementation of TLS. Could be wrong, though...
