Rats!  I was hoping that would flush things out, but wasn't expecting it 
to work.

With -t 1, you're still running with more than one real thread, but only 
1 worker thread is processing Zope requests.  Most of the time when 
there is a threading issue, the worker Zope threads are the ones that do 
the potentially thread-unsafe work, so running with -t 1 will prevent a 
thread switch from occurring while an exposure could take place.

You don't need to bother with the different ExtensionClass.h; the magic 
in my special version is NOT necessary to apply, and should not make 
your system any more stable.
