Ah, after unprelinking I get that failure with F14 gdb. But, it works
nicely with the new stuff:
$ ../build/gdb/gdb -args ../../glibc/install/lib/ld-2.13.90.so ./testload

I'm glad I have this reproduced now, it's IMO a much more compelling
argument for the fix than the somewhat arbitrary testcase the bug was
originally filed with.
