How do you know it's rpm locking up then, if you almost never use the
plain rpm command? (If up2date tracebacks for some reason and you didn't
run it from the command line, it may appear to freeze instead, for
instance. I filed that in Bugzilla shortly after the RHL 9 release,
although I don't remember the bug number right now.)

Also, could you try running the command "getconf GNU_LIBPTHREAD_VERSION"
and tell us the output? (I might have other advice based on the output
of this command.)
