not sure any more. the package is built but the success of t/stress.t is
subject to the number of threads it makes.

trying with 500 threads the virtual memory goes up to 3Gb (i have 4Gb of RAM
and a 32bit kernel, which gives ~3.6Gb of usable memory) then it fails to
create new ones returning ENOMEM, which looks benign. with 350 threads the
test goes nicely sucking almost 3Gb of virtual memory.

while 350 threads performing a simple sum consume al that virtual memory is
not that clear to me as well as how the standard 50 threads of this test left
paer out of memory.
