just read this and wanted to say:
the pthread binary of wine (the one without suffix) cannot execute a single 
game that i have (whereas there are some that DO run in kthreads mode)...
so whats actually wrong?
i thought POSIX compliance (e.g. threading ) actually means that if something 
works on platform a than it works an platform b too!?
why isnt this the case, is it wines fault or is freebsd's pthread 
implementation not good?
