No, actually a malloc with PTHREAD_STACK_MIN doesn't work, this sample 
example program fails in the same way:

#include <pthread.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <assert.h>

#define MALLOC_SIZE 1024

void *
foo(void *arg)
        void *bar;

        bar = malloc(MALLOC_SIZE);
        assert(bar != NULL);

        return (NULL);

int main(void)
        pthread_t thread;
        pthread_attr_t attr;
        int rc, i;

        rc = pthread_attr_init(&attr);
        assert(rc == 0);

        rc = pthread_attr_setstacksize(&attr, PTHREAD_STACK_MIN);
        assert(rc == 0);

        rc = pthread_create(&thread, &attr, foo, NULL);
        assert(0 == rc);

        rc = pthread_join(thread, NULL);
        assert(0 == rc);
