Well, the mystery is not entirely solved, as Firefox does not crash with
a similar failure on -current, even with the compat6x libc.so.6
installed, and without the patch to osfile_unix_allthreads.jsm.

So *something* is different in the way multiple versions of libc.so are
handled, when they are loaded into the same process.  Kostik, maybe you
have any idea?
