I did have remarkable few problems with the AIX 4.3 pthread library
(before they started the N to M user to kernel level scheduling thingy).
Also the Solaris 8 one user level thread to one kernel LWP thread
library in /usr/lib/lwp works remarkably well. The Solaris N to M user
to kernel level thread library appears to complex to make it work well
at all.
