[Gc] setjmp/longjmp and pthreads

We have a multithreaded application server that use the Boehm GC and the 
NekoVM, but we are still experiencing some strange things.

Neko is using setjmp/longjmp for exceptions handling. Is there any 
possibility that it might cause some trouble, for instance if a thread 
is interrupted by a GC signal during a longjmp ?
