[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#496125: libxml2 Gnome problem on 64bit only?

My first guess was a recently introduced breakage/incompatibility in 
glibc or similar library, but that sounds implausible as the bug also 
manifests itself in etch (which other packages than libxml2 have changed 
with the recent update in etch? none of the dependencies of Gnome apps, 

My second guess would be a multithreading issue. So I've checked here 
with one of the cores of the Core 2 duo disabled (and also with 
frequency scaling set to fixed 2.5 Ghz as well as 800Mhz), but that 
brought no change. (That doesn't preclude a multithreading issue; just 
that people with a single-core CPU should generally be able to see the 
problem too.)

I wonder if only people on 64bit machines are seeing the problem? Maybe 
everyone contributing to the bug report could mention which kind of CPU 
they are testing on and whether they can reproduce the issue or not.
