I've been having similar problems with the MachTen version.  I suspect that
there's something wrong with the thread handling on the PowerPC port, but
I haven't been able to track it down yet.  Something (the garbage collector,
perhaps), is running wild behind the sceenes and trashing thread state.

Eventually, I'll get some free time and should be able to track this down
