which is probably what's happening in my case. i've got 4 threads spun off,
and one thread reads what the other writes and vice versa. after writing, a
thread goes off into an ioctl or a read where a tsleep() is executed. this
would block the reader thread as well if libc_r were to be used, as is what
i am using.
