(1) garbage collection requires cooperation between threads; if the main
thread running gtk-main doesn't check in now and then the app will lock
up in gc

(2) i do not recommend combining threads, guile-gnome, and guile 1.6

(3) guile-gnome 2.15.90 + guile 1.8 has decent thread support, although
it depends on some unmerged g-wrap fixes -- if you are developing apps
and not hacking guile-gnome i would wait for guile-gnome 2.16.0

(4) "If it breaks you get to keep both pieces" :-)
