The problem is on +ocaml-3.04/otherlibs/systhreads/
Line 54:

     let preempt signal = yield()

Can be changed to 

    let preempt signal = 
      if not (!Sys.interactive && signal=(-11)) then

On the surface, this appears to work, but I cannot guarantee that
this will not cause any negative consequences in other situations.
