It looks like the main thing I changed, yes.
Meanwhile, I disabled the auto-scheduler switch.
I can't support it in the way it is, since it
generates tasklets which are not restorable.
We will redesign things and implement them in a
picklable way, in March.

I can't tell without longer debugging.

Sorry, I'm completely out of time for Stackless.
I have put hundreds of hours into it during the
last 5 months and got almost no income.
Can't afford to spend any time right now but on
completing the small lst contract that I have to pay
my bills. It was never as hard as this month.
