No, or possibly that might be another way around that bush too. It
turned out that there was a missing call in my bash install, and the
bash from fedora had it. Installing the same bash from fedora fixed
it all right up. Compile options difference.

Latest bug/security-fix glibc is installed. Dunno about nptl, or even
what that puppy does.

FWIW, my other amanda problem wherein it wouldn't load and search the
tape magazine it it wasn't already loaded seems to have been fixed by
adding a define in my configdir/chg-scsi.conf, nameing the
SCSItapedev = /dev/sg0, where the robot is sg1 at LUN 1, same device
addr. Normally the drive is /dev/nst0, but for that query, it has to
come through /dev/sg0 for some reason. 2.4 kernels didn't have a
problem with that, 2.6.0-test11 at least did. And there hadn't been
any changes to the chg-scsi stuff in amanda since 2001 so that cannot
be blamed on "newer versionitis". :)

So there are apparently two solutions to the first problem, and at
least one to the second above.
