Don't know about the folks who reported this, but it doesn't fix the 
problem on my system.  Its not worth explaining why I'm just now running
into this problem, but I'm now getting frequent core dumps when linked
with libc 5.3.x.  1.0.5 works fine when linked to libc 4.x.  1.1b2 seems
to work fine either way although my testing hasn't been thorough or
anything.  My suggestion at this point is to try to get
the folks experiencing Linux problems to duplicate the problem with 1.1.

I'd spend some time trying to track this down, but since 1.1 seems to
work and is about to be released ... there are other ponies to ride.
