I get plenty of 
assertion "0" failed: file "/usr/src/lib/libpthread/pthread.c", line 400, function "pthread__idle"

thats the last assert(0) in pthread__idle()

at the same time I get

sa_switch(1735.11 flag 900004): Not enough stacks. from the kernel.

mozilla and psi are the two threaded applications I use and both dies. I've
added a p_comm to the 'Not enough stacks' message and well see if its both
or just mozilla that dies in that error.
