[Kde-perl] OT: Problems when dealing with perl threads....

It looks like everything is getting double-freed. Try exiting the
threads with POSIX::_exit(). That'll prevent all cleanup code from
being run.

The consequences of doing that may be dire (massive memory-leak, among
others), but I'm curious about the results for you.

PerlQt is highly allergic to ithreads. The code assumes there is a 1:1
relationship between Qt objects and Perl objects, and when ithreads
clones the interpreter, hell breaks loose.
