IME FreeBSD 4.x's pthreads support, while stable, has some interesting
corner cases which are progressively being dealt with in 5.x.
5.0 was very much a test release, and nobody should still be using it.
5.1 is quite usable as a workstation & light duty server, but I hear it
still suffers under heavy load. There has been no -stable release from
the 5.x (aka current) branch yet; the latest I hear is that -stable won't
arrive until 5.3.
