Hi Guilhem, 

I 've tested your fix on x86 with pthreads and it has been running for a whole 
day. On the other hand It seems that it generates high CPU usage and the 
system seems almost frozen. I could hardly move the mouse pointer. The 
testing host is a Centrino 1.6GHz laptop.
I 've also tested x86 with jthreads.The jthreads system runs smoother and 
stresses the cpu less, but after a lot of hours (15.5) it failed:

Thread: Time100 :sync :1 Alive:15/03/2006, 06:20:25.843
Test started at 14/03/2006, 14:53:09.864
TimeA15000: i = 1000011100499
Thread: TimeA15000 :sync :1 Alive:15/03/2006, 06:20:26.419
kaffe-bin: jthread.c:2452: jmutex_unlock: Assertion `tid->status != 1' 

Maybe I should dedicate a pc to run the pthreads test for some days to make 
sure that it is ok.
I 'm trying to crosscompile and try on ARM (PXA 255), but I face some 
difficulties, possibly with zlib. I 'll let you know as soon as I make some 
progress with cross compiling
