ACK - I've seen the problem as well, and this avoids the crash.

I don't know if we should be opening a bug against glibc for regressing
on dlopen() behavior under RTLD_NOW, or if it was a bug in our
assumptions for how RTLD_NOW works.  I also don't know if the change
would have caught the original bug that shunloadtest was designed to
test, although it's on my list of things to check out.  But we might as
well push this now, as it is certainly making my development on F16
painful while the crash continues to happen.
