After upgrading to 5.3-BETA3 (from 5.2.1-p9) one of my programs started to crash with
Illigal Instruction (SIGILL) after it restarted itself with a execv

gdb is telling me:

Program terminated with signal 4, Illegal instruction.
#0  0x28274d3f in pthread_testcancel () from /usr/lib/

#8  0x0807a1d7 in main (argc=5, argv=0xbfbfec70) at comm.c:256

I'm at a loss on how to get to the bottom of this problem.

Can anybody shed some light on this?
