This may well be.  However, GNU/Linux systems using the pthread variant,
there is little hope anyone is ever going to fix the kthread variant.  I
have included the kthread variant as an added benefit, but all development
and bug fixing really should go into the pthread variant.

You did not mention whether this works for your applications, but I 
assume it does not?
