Two thoughts.

1. Is it just that the main thread takes longer than 1 second to
unlock the mutex?  Does the test pass reliably if you increase the 2
in `(+ (current-time) 2)' to, say 5 or 10?

Note that you can run just threads.test by:

$ meta/uninstalled-env meta/guile test-suite/tests/threads.test

2. Is it something to do with specifying or converting time in the
wrong way?  (Time zone issue? - could conceivably work better in
Europe (where most of the core developers currently are) than in US?)

I guess (1) is more likely, so I'll investigate (2) in more detail if
(1) doesn't help.
