+        Log: HP-UX 11 threads.
+             
+             From: Jeff Okamoto <okamoto@xfiles.intercon.hp.com>
+             To: perl5-porters@perl.org
+             Cc: jhi@cc.hut.fi

+             Date: Wed, 3 Feb 1999 12:57:18 -0800 (PST)
+             Message-Id: <199902032057.MAA10218@xfiles.intercon.hp.com>
+             
+             NOTE from jhi: the hpux hints could still be more robust by
+             disabling gdbm when necessary.
+             
+             Currently if there's a libgdbm.sl (gdbm 1.7.3) which is pre-11,
+             linking -lgdbm -lpthread creates an executable that instantly
+             core dumps on a pthreads internal panic:
+             
+             ./gdpt
+             
+             Pthread internal error: message: __libc_reinit() failed, file: ../pthreads/pthread.c, line: 1096
+             Return Pointer is 0xc082bf33
+             17639 quit (core dumped)  ./gdpt
+             
+             You don't have to *use* either gdbm or pthreads in the executable,
+             just linking them together is enough.  Workaround is to recompile
+             the GDBM under HP-UX 11, that makes the problem go away.
