Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-close.c: 759: _dl_close: Assertion `map->l_init_called' failed!

Bug Description

When I dynamically load a GSS mechanism that itself depends on the GSS library I get the following error on process exit:

Inconsistency detected by ld.so: dl-close.c: 759: _dl_close: Assertion `map->l_init_called' failed!

The Debian package apparently has a workaround for this (according to Sam), so... could you make this available to us Ubuntu 12 users too, please?

The server runs Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS. The KRB5 package version is 1.10+dfsg~beta1-2ubuntu0.3

1.11.3+dfsg-3 does have a fix for this, however I haven't seen it come over here yet.

Hi. What's going on here is that it seems there are cases where on process exit, ld.so will destruct the plugins before it destructs the dlopening library. So it sets m_inited to 0. But as part of its finalizer the library tries to clean up its resources, and dlcloses the plugins. Getting you this crash. For Debian I've decided to leak the library resource.

Stefan, I've prepared packages that should fix the problem available at https://launchpad.net/~hartmans/+archive/ubuntu-fixes
that page includes instructions on how to add the archive to your system. After you do that please update at least libgssapi-krb5-2 and let us know whether it fixes the problem.

Ubuntu review team, it turns out that the debian/saucy patch does not apply to precise. I've linked a branch of a proposed precise package. Let me know if there's anything else I can do to assist the process.

OK, that's probably the cause of the segfault.
I've deleted the broken packages from our debian and ubuntu archives.
Unfortunately getting fixed packages to reappear is a bit annoying at
the moment.
The packages in
http://repository.project-moonshot.org/debian-moonshot/pool/main/m/moonshot-gss-eap
now sholud be OK.
In particular the deb from April.

OK.
So, if I'm understanding correctly the libgssapi-krb5-2 from my PPA did
fix the problem.
There was a segfault introduced by an update at the same time that was
unrelated to the ppa change.

If that's all correct, I think we have a solution to the precise
problem.
