On my dual CPU machine, having PTHREAD_CONCURRENCY set to 2, a small
program that creates two threads, makes one thread to spin in a while
loop and has the second thread trying to kill the first, throws an
assertion in pthread_sig.c (pthread__kill)which does not expect to have
a thread in the running state. This is the problem that needs to be fixed.
