Subject: Marshaling of custom blocks and threads

Can s/o please confirm whether the module Marshal (and especially its
usage to serialize custom blocks) is thread-safe in Ocaml 3.0 ?
I remember reading sth about a pb with bytecode threads and marshaling
in a previous version of Ocaml but cannot determine surely whether
the pb has been fixed since.

The reason i ask follows :  i have a program with (bytecode) threads
exchanging data (float arrays)  with Marshal.to_string/ThreadUnix.write and
This program works ok for small data sets (typically less than 100
floats) but crashes when the array size increases.
