Exactly *was*. Ehi, do you think I'm stupid? Of course in the meanwhile
I have checked that the problem is present in machines equipped with
glibc2.3.5 and is not, on the same machines, for 4_0-branch.

Exactly. But, given the glibc bug above, masking the gcc behavior well into
2005 for some of our machines, at least, isn't possible that when we switched
to builtins everywhere something got broken? Alternately, the ia64 builtins
themselves can be defective, but that seems much less likely to me, because
we are talking about a very consistent behavior for relatively simple usages
of one single mutex and one single atomic counter.
