Thanks. That is a useful data point but David Xu has done a lot of
work on libthr that has probably not been MFC'd back to 5.x. When I
get the chance I'll try building KDE on my desktop which runs a
derivative of -CURRENT.  It may well be a general kernel bug, as I
recall seeing the same error running FreeBSD on Xen with several
threaded apps.
