#3773 event loop effect: a bug?

obsolete: 8.5a7

Enabling threads seems to change the event loop behaviour. On 8.5a6 unthreaded the event loop runs ieven if there are no event sources: 'vwait forever' in a freshly launched tclsh just "hangs" indefinitely.

In an unthreaded build we see the well known
% vwait forever
can't wait for variable "forever": would wait forever

This is on Linux/i686, kernel 2.6.20

    Miguel, you said 'unthreaded' for both examples. Which is which witch ? I am guessing that the first example is 'threaded'. The one which starts the event loop.

    Correct: the one that starts the event loop is threaded. Sorry for the confusion.
