Mmh, I haven't seen that.   That  warning comes from a refactoring
that Ville did a few months back to make the threaded code supposedly
more robust. I'm sure he'll be able to provide some further info.  He
might be able to suggest how to trigger a failure, case in which we
could try to fix it further.

We'll see where this goes after feedback from Ville (or anyone else
who's knowledgeable on the matter).
