Ok, Keir's new binary rewriting patch obviously has problems with
the libc shipped with FC2. 

I suspect we'll have to setup FC2 here to be able to debug this,
which is a pain.

Please can you try a 'cset -x1.1162' which changed some of the iopl

I hope the failure with FC2 is just a bug in the new binary
rewriting code rather than a violation of one of the assumptions,
which will cause us to have to disable it (in which case, we'd
have to recommend moving /lib/tls out the way as the only decent

If you could make a tar ball of your /lib/tls directory available
that may save us from having to do a full FC2 install.
