Hrm..this could be quite dangerous as the Jabber server doesn't
actually have pre-emptive threads -- it uses a cooperative, user-land
thread implementation that is definately not pre-emptive.

Yeah, I would guess that ORBacus uses pthreads or something..mixing
those with the PTH threads that Jabber uses just doesn't
work. Sorry. :)

However, the Jabber.com server is fully pre-emptive -- if you really
want to mix an ORB in, you might contact them and see if they can help
you out.
