Perhaps the executable was statically compiled?

I reckon SIG32 is the signal used by the threadslib to jump into the
scheduler every timeslice.
You can try the following in GDB, before starting the program:
  handle SIG32 nostop noprint pass

That will prevent GDB from stopping when it receives the signal, it
won't print any occurrances
either, and the signal will be passed to program which is being debugged.
