Hi all,

master users only.

Please do not upgrade your world (kernel works) to
e12d3396c777165504d60d2a1408dcd7cb63660d; this specific commit will
break all programs linked against libpthread:
Fatal error 'Cannot allocate red zone for initial thread' at line 262
in file /usr/src/lib/libthread_xu/thread/thr_init.c (errno = 12)

If you have already upgraded, you could just fetch the old dmalloc.c
and replace the one in /usr/src/lib/libc/stdlib (sigh, git no longer
works here), rebuildworld and reinstallworld.

It probably will be fixed soon.

Best Regards,

Tomorrow Will Never Die
