Threads and blocking native methods

I have a native method that blocks waiting for an external event
and my problem is that whenever a thread executes that method
the whole virtual machine stops.
What I wanted is that other threads would be able to continue
their activities. Is there a way to do that (maybe even changing
the thread scheduler) or do I have to use non-blocking methods only?
BTW, I'm using kaffe 0.8.4 on a NetBSD machine.
