[kaffe] Problem with garbage collection and p-threads

The garbage collection is not working properly when an application using JNI is running. There is simply no collection of no-longer-used memory at all, instead the entire process is frozen when the gc should start. Kaffe is build with p-threads due to our native code is using p-threads. 

Is there anyone who has used p-thread compiled kaffe together with JNI? Is this supposed to work? If not, how much work would it take to fix it?
