maybe. there were some issues with it (trivial ones), who knows,
maybe we've overlooked something.

if you have a multi-core system and value stability over performance, i 
recommend binding you lisp process to a single core (via taskset in Linux, 
for example).
this way multithreading-related issues will have much less chances to 
there could be issues with SBCL itself, SBCL developers do not claim that
they have 100% thread-safe code in all places, and i've seen some version of 
crashing under multithreaded load.
