(jumping right into the middle of discussion...)
it sounds to me like the perl SDL module should be linked against a
specifically built SDL library that is specifically not threaded.
that said, perl does have it's own weird thread goo, that (as i
understand it) exposes a some (a few? all?) thread operations to the
perl program. has anyone tried that out?
