Thanks for the information, this is really helpful as I don't have a lot of
time to experiment (even though I'd prefer to do that).

There is a size limit imposed by the shared librarie support.  This limit is

16M per application and library so you'll probably not encounter it with 16M

of RAM.

I believe DavidM has pthreads working.  Has it made the latest release?

Probably not a lot of difference really.
