Subject: [Caml-list] Unix module and threads
Hello caml-list,

I wonder what happens if I call [Unix.chdir foo] from two different 
threads, with two different directories?

After chdir I typicall call [Unix.system] and/or 
[Unix.open_process_full] and expect the directory to be the one just 
previously set with [Unix.chdir].

I would like to parallelize a simple building tool that I've written, 
but I'm a bit worried if things will mysteriously break with the 
introduction of multi-threaded control.

I am running both Windows (Cygwin and native) and Linux.

Thank you for your help,
Janne Hellsten
