[Gc] Collection from unknown thread with iOS simulator

I am running into some issues with the iPhone simulator when using the GC
7.2 and 7.2d. Basically the issue is that I get a "Collecting from unknown
First of all the GC is configured with
CFLAGS="-DNO_DYLD_BIND_FULLY_IMAGE -arch i386 -isysroot $SDK_LIB"
CPPFLAGS="-DNO_DYLD_BIND_FULLY_IMAGE -arch i386 -isysroot $SDK_LIB"
LDFLAGS="-arch i386 -isysroot $SDK_LIB -Wl,-syslibroot $SDK_LIB"
./configure --disable-dependency-tracking --host=arm-apple-darwin
--enable-cplusplus --enable-static --disable-shared
I am also running into the issue when I specify --enable-threads=posix.
This is how I include the header files:
When the program starts I do call GC_INIT(). So from this perspective
everything should be fine. But unfortunately the simulator spawns a thread
that is not tracked by the GC causing this error.
I have tried several solutions like GC_use_threads_discovery before GC_INIT
without success. This ends in SIGABRT with "Darwin task-threads-based stop
and push unsupported".
The operating system is Mac OS X 10.6 and the simulator uses SDK version
4.3 in case that matters for you.
This is the trace of the offending thread as it seems:

#26 0x90a620de in thread_start ()
I remember that I already had the collector working on an actual device a
while ago so I am a little bit confused about what is going on here.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
