This is a common problem with more common salvation : use ports/devel/pth
library. It will solve this problem COMPLETELY AT ALL. I'm currently running
FreeBSD-4-STABLE build, upgradin' my kernel weekly and has no sign of such a
problem. Always remember the main benefit of OpenSource - source is just a
subject to work with... You may use defaults and they must work, but there's
no guarantee that this will work fine and 100%-fast for YOUR
hardware/software environment. Don't be shy to make modifications -
developers aren't the ones who must do all the job for you. It's up toy you
Post Scriptum. 5.4 is not GOOD. It must be used ONLY if you don't have
another way. It's memory leak is horrible....
