I haven't dug into your code, but let us not forget that any function
used to create a thread must have extern "C" linkage. A class member
function, even a static one, won't do. FYI, the Objectspace threads
library uses an internal driver function with "C" linkage, taking a
single void * parameter, which points to a structure containing the real
thread_func and param pointers. So when the thread starts running the
driver function, the first thing it does is invoke threadfunc(param).
