 Do you think that anything using boehm-gc with threads currently faces
 the same problem as well?  I use ECL with it, built with threads
 enabled, and although it works pretty well, it's not 100% stable when I
 heavily test multithreaded applications (and that on both Linux and
 NetBSD).  There has been some work to reimplement ECL's locking system
 too though, and that's not considered stable either, but I use a custom
 implementation here which is more straightforward.
 But I'd very much like to know if boehm-gc itself is fundamentally
 broken in that area.
