I guess you realize that the README.TASKING file that comes with GNAT
for linux clearly states that Annex D conformance requires FSU threads and
not LinuxThreads ?

Of course, the blocking behaviour of FSU threads might not be what you want,

The question that bugs me is in what measure is the problem compiler/platform
dependend ?
