[Openmcl-devel] Threads and lispbuilder-sdl and cocoa

Lispbuilder has some known problems running on CCL OS X. Recently a user
pointed out that the failures seen in CCL can be duplicated in SBCL by
starting lispbuilder in a new thread. Our guess is that cocoa doesn't like
being called from any thread other than the initial thread. (Lispbuilder
uses a portable wrapper around cocoa.) I'm wondering if there is any way to
arrange to have our cocoa code run in the initial thread (preferably without
having to rewrite the existing wrapper)?
