GCC 3.4 and glibc/nptl: Cancellation broken

On both i686 and amd64 (no other platforms tested) the current CVS
glibc with nptl enabled does not pass the nptl testsuite when compiled
with GCC 3.4 CVS.  The failing tests include:


Note that the tests without the 'x' work.  AFAIK the only difference
between them is the usage of -fexceptions for the ones with the x.

On AMD64 I get the following (i686 is equivalent) backtrace for

The problem seems to be that the unwind functions are both in the
executable image and in libgcc_s which is loaded by glibc (via

The actual problem then is that the called _Unwind_ForcedUnwind is
From gcc_s and initializes its static dwarf_reg_size_table.  But later
the _Unwind_SetGR in the executable is called from the personality
routine which looks at its own static dwarf_reg_size_table - and this
one was never initialized and this leads to the abort.  

The unwind functions in the executable come from libgcc_eh.a and those
From libgcc_s are dynamically loaded.

Note this works with GCC 3.3.

How is this supposed to work properly - and why does it work with 3.3
but not with 3.4?
