You're going to need to provide more information than that.
We have many multithreaded programs using libpthread, so
the How-To-Repeat isn't very helpful.

There were also bugs in 5.3-release that have been fixed since,
so you can also try updating to -stable or -current.
Also, if you are using nvidia provided drivers, they are
not thread-safe with libpthread.
