Dang it!  Well now I remember and that was it.  The last time this was
brought up, the message was thought to be harmless but I bugged it for
later.  I can't remember the exact details but it still apears to be
harmless in context, not to mention the offending code has been there
for quite some time.  There is no severity listed on the bug however the
fix states trivial with a priority of P3.  The problem is a real double
fclose().  The correct fix is availible here:

http://www.openoffice.org/nonav/issues/showattachment.cgi/21660/openoffice.org-1.9.69.doublefree.patch

Rebuilding pscpp now...  The nptl patch will probably be renamed
glibc-2.3.4 and fix added there as it's not nptl specific...rather
glibc's handling of the code.  The old default was to simply bypass
it....it can still be set to bypass instead of patching, but the patch
looks correct.

Oh yeah...the bug link might be nice...
