This happens for all programs, even when there are no dlopen/dlsym
errors? That seems really odd, since the changed code should be
unreachable in the absence of such errors. Does the error happen at
start, at exit, or some other time while the program is running?

Whatever the cause is, I'm pretty sure it's on the lsan side, and not
musl's fault. But it would be nice to get some more information so we
can check and maybe send a useful report to lsan for fixing whatever
is broken.
