I have no idea what trampoline stacks do, but our threads do fiddle with
the stack of course. Can you first connect your venus to our testserver;
if there are threading problems, they will likely also show up in Venus. 

There are some small test programs for the threads package in
lib-src/mlwp. Try those too. 

Also since there are RVM problems, running the RVM basher would be a good
idea.  This is a much simpler program  than the server.

FYI, we are leaving RH4.2 behind, we don't have enough people to keep up
with old stuff at the moment. 

I noticed you are filled with hate; just relax, it's supposed to be fun,
otherwise don't do it.
