Scratch that, it's amazing what one can mess up when your tired.. somehow the libmap.conf that I thought I had created either ceased to exist, got saved as a totally different name in some random directory, or the whole experience was a figment of my imagination. After writing another libmap.conf, fstat definately shows libthr being accessed over libc_r and everything seems stable, performing just as well as libc_r to the naked eye. This of course is only after 15 minutes or so with gnome2 and a few other programs. Is there any information I can find as to the technical differences and/or advantages to libthr over libc_r? Are there any programs or situations (other then those caused by more experimental code) in which libc_r would be better suited then libthr?
