This looks like problem with DNS setup, probably you dns doesn't resolve localhost.localdomain or something like it. But actually it looks like a bug and should be investigated.

I am not sure that the problem is in starting thread. I think it's somewhere on new thread that locks. Can you reproduce lock, attach to process with gdb and then collect backtrace with 'thread apply all backtrace' gdb command. 


It can give some clues for us.
