Some OpenGL applications (like Quake3 Arena) crash when I start them
on Red Hat Linux 9.0.


Some versions of the glibc package shipped by Red Hat that support
TLS do not properly handle using dlopen() to access shared libraries
which utilize some TLS models.  This problem is exhibited, for example,
when Quake3 Area dlopen()'s NVIDIA's libGL library.  Please obtain
at least glibc-2.3.2-11.9 which is available as an update from Red Hat.
