I have no idea where the problem might be. Linux pThreads is not perfect, but 
it might just as well be that the current pSather code does not follow all 
standards and it is just luck that it runs on Windows.

I'm sorry, but actually, I do not feel guilty. I definitely believe that I did 
fix more bugs than I produced. Of course, moving directories and changing the 
build-structure is a dangerous business, but IMO, the things I did all 
simplyfied the stuff we have, so - at least in the long run - it should pay of.
