I've seen unthreaded processes become unkillable too.
And again, you can't comment on problems with threading
under sparc64 because KSE doesn't work there until
"someone steps up" and makes it work.  I've been using
libpthread under x86 without seeing any of the problems
you are describing.  I'm not discounting your problems,
but your advocating removal of KSE when it's been
very functional for a long time is very unjust.
