Yes, that was an Owl 3'ish system with OpenSSL 0.9.7m and a custom build
of gcc 4.5.0.  x86_64, 8 logical CPUs (so 8 threads).

--test --format=ssh doesn't fail, but gives rather poor performance
(similar to that of a single thread), which might be related to the same
problem (the threads accessing the same memory pages).
