If you are able to reproduce it, please create a tarball containing
the binary and all its dependencies (do ldd on the binary and tar
everything up).

Even if packages misbehave when prelinked and don't when not prelinked,
there is no guarantee prelink is at fault.
Prelink changes the memory layout of the application, so if certain
library or binary e.g. has memory management bugs, it can show up
only with certain memory layouts and not with others.

Anyway, if you have a reproducer and tar up the binary, all libraries
and whatever else is necessary for reproduction, that goes away
if you unprelink the binary or its libraries, I'll certainly look at
it.
