It might be easier and also more helpful to get the new GThread code
working.  I'm hoping that it will help to find some of its bugs, too.

Gstreamer doesn't change contexts between threads.  It splits up
the stack of a single thread into multiple cothreads, and longjumps
(or equivalent) between contexts in a single thread.  I don't think
this should be a problem with most threading implementations.
