  I just built and tested 2.0b2 on Slackware 7.0, and found that
threads failed miserably.  I got the message:

pthread_cond_wait: Interrupted system call

over & over (*hundreds* of times before I killed it) during one of the
tests (test_fork1.py? it scrolled out of the scollback buffer, 2000
lines).  If I configure it --without-threads it works great.  Unless
you need threads.

uname -a says:
Linux linux1.compile.sourceforge.net 2.2.14-5.0.14smp #1 SMP Sun Mar 26 13:03:52 PST 2000 i686 unknown

ldd ./python says:
	libdb.so.3 => /lib/libdb.so.3 (0x4001c000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x40056000)
	libutil.so.1 => /lib/libutil.so.1 (0x4005a000)
	libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x4005d000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4007a000)
	/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

  If anyone has any ideas, please send them along!  I'll turn this
into a real bug report later.
