pytorch=1.8.0 crashes python on Linux CI with "libgcc_s.so.1 must be installed for pthread_cancel to work"
An effect of this can be seen at: https://gitlab.idiap.ch/bob/bob.ip.binseg/-/jobs/247142/raw, where the job literally crashes during a simple 'sphinx-build'.
This is not reproducible on my own Idiap VM, but I managed to reproduce it consistently on the Docker image we use for the CI builds. I tested the same setup with pytorch=1.9.1 and, with that version, the crashes are gone.
I'm thus requesting we consider the (urgent) upgrade of pytorch to version 1.9.1. Without this, I'm afraid we won't be able to fix bob.ip.binseg builds on Linux.
