Thanks for your report! The EXT:MAKE-THREAD vs THREADS:MAKE-THREAD
will be fixed in the next release.

Interesting idea indeed. Especially since uncaught errors themselves
cause Java applications to be terminated too. It's definitely
something to be studied more. I'll file an enhancement ticket for it -
sorry can't address the issue right now.
