There are more problems because the different instances of the
Lua core don't know of each other but compare pointers to globals.
This leads to subtle failure scenarios.

It's mentioned on the Wiki:
  Section: "Do Not Link Modules to the Lua Core Libraries"

I'd like to add a definitive solution for AIX + xlc to the page.
Please keep us updated.
