Yes, I see this on Debian Linux since several months (libc update?).

The crash is caused by libc startup code which calls a null pointer.
QEMU provides this null pointer with the __init_array_start
workaround in linux-user/main.c.

This can be fixed with some kind of code hack - see my patch
(which is not really a solution, but one more workaround).

Nevertheless user mode emulations remains unusable even
with this patch because of TLS problems.
