Strange, if you compile the main program without -fPIC, the testcase
works correctly.  Normally, there should never be a need to compile a
normal executable with -fPIC, but it should not break anything either.

I am not sure what causes this, but I will investigate.  For now, the
workaround is to compile only shared objects with -fPIC.
