Ok, time for a new acronym: <>. :-)

Doesn't look too out-of-order to me...  It's normal to have one or two
threads waiting in WaitForMultipleObjects (on signal handling and such).
What are the other threads doing?  (Hint: 'info threads').
P.S. If *all* of the threads are in that method, _then_ something's wrong.
