I found an email from october where it was mentioned that
pthread_getspecific seems to be not really supported by the garbage
collector. Is this correct for macosx, linux, win32, bsd's and solaris ?

How about variables with the "__thread" declaration keyword that exist
on linux/solaris and as "declspec(thread)" on win32.

Will the gc work correctly if i use "GC_add_roots" and
"GC_remove_roots" to tell the gc about the memory area ?

Best regards,
