Bear in mind that the new TLS/NPTL situation may well be pointing up
programming bugs or poor practise (eg. see the comment about errno in
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=81005
) that didn't show up with earlier glibc / kernel combinations, so
it could still be a problem with xmms.

I would say it was worth bugzillaing it at RedHat, because it might be a
NPTL/TLS bug, and even if it isn't they might need a work around in
case it is caused by a common programming error affecting 3rd party
packages.
