Apparently in a static binary the (statically linked) runtime init code
will dlopen() another related library, and this is where the crash occurs.

Not that is matters, but that's what's apparently causing the crash.

Someone should write a shell script or something that will take a
patchfile, replace the loki_patch binary with a glibc 2.3-compatible one
and run it from there, so we can at least say "oh, here, download this

   sh ./patchhack myactualpatch.sh.run

(or something.)
