I'm on a quad core Core i7 MacBook Air, Mac OS X 10.8.1, CCL 1.9-dev-r15460M-trunk  (DarwinX8632)

The first time through your test:

(cl-user::fill-memory-holes #x0a000000)
(cl-user::fill-malloc #x0a000000)
(dotimes (i 100)
	(print i)
	(process-run-function "do you feel lucky?" (lambda ())))))

runs without issues - thread creation and printing are instantaneous.
However, repeated execution of the sequence causes the thread creation and printing to slow greatly until the failure you describe.

warmest regards,
