SubjectRe: [PATCH] bug in setpgid()? process groups and thread groups

In my case I'm getting read() returning EIO when it tries to read from
the terminal, because the thread pgid doesn't equal the terminal
foreground pgid. I could solve this problem if either setpgid sets the
pgid in all threads in the thread group, or if I could run setpgid in
all threads for myself (I would prefer the latter just because it is a
bit more flexible). The current situation is just annoyingly broken
because there's no user-space way to fix it.
