So the process of resolving _Z8equals42d (defined in both main and
libshared.so) which you call from _ZL13init_shared_2v, causes the
global init in main to run.  This is likely a glibc ld.so issue, not a
binutils problem.

This also is likely a glibc issue.  You may find it better to ask
about this problem on the glibc list.
