I can reproduce this,

(gdb) bt
#0  0x401afd80 in __pthread_sigsuspend () from /lib/libpthread.so.0
#1  0x401aea7c in __pthread_wait_for_restart_signal () from
#2  0x401afc40 in pthread_create@@GLIBC_2.1 () from /lib/libpthread.so.0

Seems like it's waiting for some signal to be passed to the process, but
it doesn't happen.
