Not exactly a bug, but found looking at cruft/bloat in struct pthread: the start function pointer and argument are reused in a hackish way for timer threads. There are actually a lot of ugly hacks in the whole way SIGEV_THREAD timers are implemented, that could be eliminated by either waiting for the signal (rather than handling it) or doing away with use of signals and kernel timers entirely for SIGEV_THREAD, and instead implementing it all in userspace with clock_nanosleep.
