I meant Java native threads (java -native instead of java -green). What
is their status on i386? Is i386 emulation able to run java programs
with native threads or not?

PowerPC Linux emulation is able to run complex Java programs with native
threads, but it rarely hangs (it does in Tomcat for instance). I wonder
if i386 suffers the same machine independent bug, or if the problem is
machine dependent on both platforms.
