Subject: [Caml-list] bytecode threads which don't start
I'm the maintainer of a tiny library that can be used to create simple
standalone http servers. The library support different http servers
architecture, including the classical multi threaded one where a new
thread is created to serve each incoming request.

I'm now facing the problem that it works perfectly with pthreads, both
in bytecode and native code, but it doesn't work with bytecode ocaml

I've debugged a bit the problem and the result is that thread created
with Thread.create simply don't start. The function return but the
function passed as first argument simply doesn't get executed.

I don't know how to debug further more the problem. Unfortuntaly I'm not
able to reproduce the problem with tiny examples. So I'm wondering if I
had used some "prohibited" features that don't fit well with bytecode
threads (I'm for example using both signals and timeouts).

Any hints?
