This is because Mandrake strips their libpthread.so which 1) breaks
backtraces, 2) makes it impossible to debug threaded applications
under Mandrake. I have tried reporting this blatant bug to them with
no reponse so far (I should note that I was the one who got them to
fix it in the first place, quite some time ago).

To get a correct backtrace, download
http://david.hedbor.org/tmp/libs.tgz, unpack and do:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<pathtolibs>/libs/

before running UT. You will then get a valid backtrace.
