Apologies, I didn't mean to implicate the threading libraries in regards
to this bug.  The client program that's doing the dumb reads isn't

I mentioned it in the same thread because I was thinking that if this
client bug is slowing down MySQL's client libraries on all FreeBSD
systems, then once it's fixed _and_ libpthread works well, MySQL will
really fly!
