FYI,
I also had to

export LD_PRELOAD=/home/..../ext/posix_mq/posix_mq_ext.sl

to avoid a crash because of :
"Can't dlopen a library containing Thread Local Storage .... "
which doesn't make me happy.

If I want to use gem, I have to include etc.sl in LD_PRELOAD,
but if I forget to unset it, some crazy things start happening.
A number of programs and utilities just stop functioning.
For example, 'man' stops working and displays nothing.
So I avoid having the LD_PRELOAD variable set if at all possible.

Cheers,
Tad
