Can you explain which problems? :)
Threading on 4.x has worked for some time, although its a somewhat limited
implmeentation. Its just userland pthreads so it doesn't parallelize well.
In 5.x, we have true kernel-based threads, but there's some problems with
certain programs. Works great for KDE however. :)
