In our installation there is no directory /lib/tls existent. I also did 
a "find . -name libc.so.6" and only one file in /lib was found. Hence it 
seems, that NPTL is *not* supported in our installation. Sorry for the 

But since the problem seems to be solved by using kernel 2.6.7 together 
with the hal6 patch, there is no need to dig deeper here, I think.
