Okay, once we get the new pari in the distribution, it would be good
to look at these databases and see what we should have in Fedora.

Hmmm, interesting information. I'll CC the pari maintainer on this
email to make him aware of a potential issue there. Do you have any
idea if the problem was a bug in pari itself, or in Sage's use of
I think I did it "defensively" when debugging problems in the
sagemath package, as newer pari uses a lot of tls variables, e.g.
$ grep -r __thread .
./src/headers/parisys.h:# define THREAD __thread
$ grep -r THREAD . | wc -l
and it has things like __thread static variables in functions, several
global variables, etc.
But at least in pari 2.5.1 it is disabled by default.
