Of course, that paragraph is only correct for MRI 1.8.x and earlier,
and is irrelevant to the issue here, which was correctly addressed in
the first post in the thread, and has nothing to do with any special
peculiarities of thread implementations in any of the various Ruby
implementations, but just with the fact that threads (even native
threads) aren't the same thing as native processes.
