hmm. if it passes, it should pass ! If thread-related tests fail, 
probably there is more a dead-lock problem or something of the kind when 
the machine is reasonably fast. It would be better to investigate WHY of 
some slowness than hacking the tests and giving us false positive. We 
have already enough failures on some platforms.
Once things work, the test suites passes in a reasonable amount of 
minutes even on a 200-Mhz range system.
