Ulrich did an awesome job in keeping backward compatibility with
LinuxThreads (thanks!!). I didn't find any major problem when
testing Sun JDK 1.4.1_01 (note: 1.4.1_01 was released before NPTL and
we have a lot of low-level stuff).

There was a notion that pre-NPTL JVMs, including 1.4.1_01, contain a lot of kludges to support LinuxThreads and its aberrations from POSIX, and that those kludges cause problems under NPTL. Is there any truth in that?
