Yep, that's exactly what was happening :).

No worries re:suggestion, and yeah local lock sounds good :).
I *am* running vmkit (w/openjdk) on applications that spawn multiple
threads, but none run correctly yet (my only non-synthetic test cases
are dacapo and similar). Thanks for the SPECJVM suggestion, didn't
realize it was free. As for more tractable goals, let me know if you
have any suggestions for suitable test applications.
Note that beyond what's here on the mailing list, I have a few more
patches (phew, almost done!) in my local tree that haven't been
upstreamed yet. Hopefully I'll be synced with trunk very soon and can
start looking at fixing remaining unimplemented things (and perhaps
misc bugs :)).

Will do, thanks! :)
