The workaround presented for this bug is to use taskset.

The problem that I have right now is that i am using VMWare.  The real
physical server have 2 CPUs, but the VMWare guest OS is only configured to
use one CPU.  This means that I cannot use taskset for setting it against
CPU number 1 because the VM thinks that it only have one CPU.

For me, running the t.sh test on a Dual Core AMD Opteron Server (Guest OS
itself having only 1 CPU), cause a core dump as well.  Trying the VM out on
a server where there is only a single real physical CPU works fine without
any crash.  Just my findings.  Not sure if anybody else is having this same
