L4Linux freezes

I've compiled and installed Fiasco and L4Linux-2.6 and it works, except
that when I start a simple test program that creates lots of  
pthreads, the
whole L4Linux task freezes (simply pthread_create() a thousand  
threads after
each other is enough to reproduce the problem). I can ping the  
machine from
another host, but can't login through ssh, the console becomes totally
unresponsive, etc.

At the same time, the following message appears in the log:

simplets|	ERROR: task #23 doesn't match: client 10.03, owner 0.0
l4lx	|	l4ts_create_task(): failed (server=7.00, ret=-3, exc=0)

Other L4 tasks continue running uncluttered.

Do you have an idea why this happens? Is this a bug in Fiasco, or is it
a misconfiguration problem?
