IIRC, 1.8.1 was compiled with `--without-threads', so you might want to
try it.  Debian-specific modifications are available in the Debian
archive, i.e.,
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/guile-1.8/guile-1.8_1.8.1+1-4.diff.gz .

With `master':

  $ guile ~/tmp/test-timeout.scm 
  fell asleepoh no, you fell asleep!Expected: outer timeout
  Observed: #<unspecified>
  outer time has expired, and outer handler is used

> $ libguile/guile ../test-timeout.scm

You should instead use the `pre-inst-guile' script.
