Working well here: HP Pavilion with P4HT3.2G.

I only ran into the hyperthreading bug the other day when trying
to chown a large directory tree. It would bomb out after a minute
or two (a few hundred to maybe a thousand files).

With the new build (whether stripped with --strip-debug or unstripped)
the command completes as expected.

Another vote for the silver star !
