Are you certain you are using the Thread.setDaemon(false) method? If you are not then the threads will inherit their daemon status from the invoking thread. If this happens to be one of the daemon framework threads then your bundle threads will be daemon also.
One quick way to find out is to run with a console and run the "threads" command. It will tell you the daemon status of your bundle threads.

As I mentioned in my previous mail, I actually have bundles installed that are creating their own (non-daemon) threads so that should keep the jvm alive, no?
