I added thread support to the X11 simulator the other day, and Felix (edx) is
on the case adding it to the win32 simulator too. I trust it is just a matter
of a few days until it works.

I'm using a mutex in the x11 code to let only one thread at a time execute
until yield() is called (which simply returns the mutex and then attempts to
get it again). This makes it more similar to the target thread system.
