pthread - fork - execv problem

I am trying to help port over an app thats posix threaded. One thread uses
fork and execv to start a child programme in this case an mp3 player.
However, under FreeBSD-5.2.1, the execv causes all the threads in the parent
process to be blocked until the child process returns. Is there a mechanism
to get around this.
