Tried it and switched back to libc_r. Whole bunch of problems appeared in
KDE applications right after switch.
* Akregator with about 40 RSS feeds - updating about 20% of them fails
* KNode with about 50 newsgroups - two cache files where unusable at all
for it and all newsgroups lost all cached headers.
* Konqueror throws random errors.
No single problem with libc_r.
I have feeling (nothing else yet) that all this is related to accessing
files. Some months ago when I tried to switch to libthread_xu.so, I had
100% reproduceable problem with "alternative KDE soundsystem" akode, but
I can't reproduce it any more. Akode couldn't play any file because it
couldn't open any ogg/mp3 file - fstat failed with EBADF. But as I said,
I can't reproduce it any more with current HEAD.
I'd be very glad if someone else would take a look at KDE problems, my
schedule is full at the moment :(.
