Okay. I assume your program isn't spawning and exiting threads
quickly in succession, otherwise, we'd see LWP ids much higher.
It's libthread_db.so that maps a thread to a LWP id, so we
may be missing some state checks and getting back a stale id.
Try the "maint info sol-threads" command (I never noticed this
command before), and let's see what state does libthread_db.so
think the thread is in. I see that linux-thread-db.c (the glibc/linux
fork of this code) has extra checks for ignoring threads in some states
that the Solaris code doesn't have.
Please don't top post. That has a tendency of making one
forget to answer questions. :-) Here it is again:
