Sort of fixed btw.

I am now checking what causes your problems, since you're using
linux_base-6, I was using linux_base, which is essentially 7.1.5.

I am getting:

/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.505: line 1:  1532 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /sbin/ldconfig
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.47347: line 1:  1544 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /sbi
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.78944: line 3:  1550 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /sbi
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.78944: line 6:  1556 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) /sbi
execution of libstdc++-2.96-112.7.1 script failed, exit status 139

They all have a calling of /sbin/ldconfig in their postinstall script
which triggers this coredump.

So something is probably still clobbering the exit, because I get the
exact same output on my Linux debugging, nothing in the syscall
wrapping, dying on exit.  Do note though that libtermcap and
compat-libstdc++ also call /sbin/ldconfig, but do _NOT_ die.

linux_base-6's gd also calls /sbin/ldconfig in its postinstall script.
