Have the threading/cond-var/socket race conditions been fixed in FreeBSD?

That is, does worker MPM from httpd-2.x function properly with multiple 
clients and multiple processes?  We've seen that the pthread condition 
variables did not function properly when threading was enabled - this is why 
we had APR_SETIFNULL(enable_threads, [no]) as we were not confident in 
FreeBSD's reliability with threads.  Please see STATUS entries in httpd-2.x 
regarding this.

Until that is confirmed, I'd highly recommend *not* enabling threads in 
FreeBSD - last we heard was that FreeBSD 4.x and 5.x were still broken.  --
