Yes it is possible to do what you intend. I just wanted to make sure that
there was no problem with thread registration at the Boehm-Weiser garbage
collector level -- when the library intercepts your calls, it registers all
threads and so the code in ECL becomes harmlessly redundant.

Thanks for reporting this problem. Will get back to you ASAP.
