Native threading only.

This may solve your problem.

I've never heard of that :).

This is particularly helpful if you can get a core generated with java_g.

Upgrade to 1.3.1p8 and see if you can reproduce the problem, particularly

My time is pretty limited right now, but if the problem still occurs after
upgrading to 1.3.1p8 I'll try and take a look.
