That is odd. Which threading system is Kaffe using? (kaffe -fullversion
will tell you.)
Both of the relevant ones (unix-pthreads and unix-jthreads) support
preemption. Perhaps something odd happened, like not finding
SIGTVALRM or something? What version of Linux (kernel/distro) are you
If you compile and run Preempt.java, what happens?
