Thanks for your response.

The problem described did not occur when we ran the test case using
backport-util-concurrent-1.1 and we ended up using that. Our code has been
through testing and is in production now. At the moment we are forced to use
LinuxThreads as v5.1  of WebSphere we are using does not support NPTL even
on a NPTL-enhanced kernel
websphere.base.doc/info/aes/ae/cins_nptl.html) Apparently v6.0 of WebSphere
supports NPTL.

I ran your test program a few times to completion without errors or problems
on a more recent linux kernel and using hotspot. My best guess is that your
very old (2.4.9) linux kernel is to blame here. Everyone running Java on
linux should be using either NPTL-enhanced 2.4 kernels (e.g., from redhat
9+) or 2.6 kernels. There were many, many Java threading problems on
pre-NPTL kernels.
