It is not required, however GNUstep does need to know that the app is
multithreaded. In a single-threaded app, it doesn't bother locking some things
internally. The simplest thing to do is start an NSThread that exits
immediately when your app launches. This will ensure that anything that needs
to be in multithreaded mode is.
