pthread problem

Hi, folks,

Recently I downloaded a C++ threading library ZThread
2.3.1 based pthread from zthread.sourceforge.net. The
compilation and installation were smooth. But when I
used a very simiple test program 'MyThread' to try
this library, I found out that the dynamically linked
program cannot exit after all threads finish, but the
statically linked program has no such problem. And if
I use LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 to run the dynamical
version, the program can exit normally. On my Redhat
Enterprise Linux 3.0 (ES) system, I found out that
normally the program will use /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0
which causes the problem, and by using
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19, the program uses
/lib/libpthread-0.10.so which does not cause any
problem, plus the statically linked program using
/usr/lib/libpthread.a works fine too!

I am wondering what are the possible causes for this
problem? and how to fix it? Any information is greatly
appreciated! Thanks a lot!
