support for Parker Hannifin servodrives. The new implementation will 
allow for indefinite fieldbuses, operating independently of each other. 
To decouple the different fieldbus IO managers we extensively use 
threads. Now, I am wondering if and how it is possible to debug a 
running multithreaded application. How does ocamldebug behave in such
