Ok, this turned out to be a stacksize issue. When I was trying to restart 
the server interactively, I wasn't using my regular startup script and a 
check with "ulimit -a" revealed that my stack limit was set to 2097151. 
Using the value from my script ("ulimit -s 2040") allowed the server to 
start. If the binary is sensitive to this, it should set this value 
explicitly when spawning threads. There's a pthread property for this. 
IIRC, one sets up a struct with various thread creation parameters and 
passes it to the thread creation API.
