Bull.  After fixing the breakage you introduced late in June and early
July, it's working pretty well actually.

You obviously haven't tried it in a while.

I expect threaded to work properly, except for two issues:

*  not getting core dumps on Linux, and
*  processes staying in mutex land with a "G" in the scoreboard on a
server with no incoming requests (yawn).

If anybody has problems with the threaded MPM on servers that actually
have incoming http requests, please let us know.
