No, that's not quite the problem.  It is:

1. Client requests GET /
2. *nothing happens*
3. Client (same or different) requests GET /subdir/
4. Server responds to GET / request issued in #1 (to the correct client)
5. *nothing happens*
6. Someone requests GET /subdir/foo/ issued in #3
7. Server responds to GET /subdir/ request
8. *nothing happens*
...repeat cycle...

Does this make more sense?  The server won't respond to the first request 
until the second request is issued and so on.  We think it's a flaw in how 
libc_r implements the pthread condition variables.  But, again, it's been 
fixed with the thread library rewrites in 5.2.  -- justin
