OK.  Which compiler?  I'm using gcc-3.3.2 (provided by Debian).

I can build libunwind with debugging enabled, but I don't think it's
gonna do me any good, since all fprintf calls will get cancelled, once
cancellation has begun.  Would it perhaps be possible for glibc to
provide a non-cancellable version of fprintf?

Where can I find the definitely list of cancellable routines?  I'm a
bit worried about libunwind.  It may call mmap (for memory allocation)
and pthread_mutex_{lock,unlock} (when global caching is in effect).
