Yes, it makes sense.
I'm after this bug since 20 hours now, and I still have no clue.
It is definately related to the timeslice() function. When I
change uthread9 to use timeslice with 1000 or more ticks,
everything works fine. That means, the auto-switching hurts
somehow. When I lower the time slice to 10, the program ends
up with a refcount of not four, but 16!

I'll give it another try. No idea whether this is a bug in
Stackless, or if it is an uthreads effect which simply doesn't
show up under 1.5.2 - sigh...
