Backtrace not working from within nanosleep

Hi all,

I have a problem with gdb on my live servers, whereby it doesn't seem
to be able to unwind the stacks of threads which have been interrupted
in nanosleep. Typically I get a backtrace like this:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x41166f56 in nanosleep () from /lib/
#1  0x00000000 in ?? ()

This looks very much like the same problem as;

and I had hoped that upgrading my glibc would solve the problem, but it

The stack looks fine - it just looks like gdb can't unwind it. Any ideas
what might be the problem here?

I have:

Linux kernel 2.4.26
GNU gdb 6.6
gcc (GCC) 3.3.4

The state of the thread is as follows:

0x4116227f is <__pthread_timedsuspend_new+191>;  0x4115e429 is

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
