Note that if you are using my other spinlock patch
that also solves the problem but in a slightly different
way. That patch forces the library to reference the
spinlock functions (the new spinlock implementation needs
some initialization), so the table of references doesn't
need to be changed (like the patch in the prior email does).
With this patch konsole from kde seems to work properly. But
OpenOffice locks now up during startup.
Libthr works properly with openoffice.
I'll start a openoffice build today to see how building works.
