Other details of your setup or configuration? What torrc lines are you
using? Did the ./configure output look funny at all?

Does it happen immediately on startup? If so, you could run it in
valgrind and then valgrind will give you a more useful hint about what's
going wrong. glibc isn't really very useful for this sort of thing.
