Small correction; both LinuxThreads and NPTL (which is what you are
talking about) are POSIX thread libraries (pthreads).

NPTL in together with upgraded pstools (of which top, ps and friends
are part) will show
only the process rather than all it's threads in listings.

I commented in length on this earlier on this list so you should be
able to find it in the archives.
