The one key thing with respect to Stackless to keep in mind, is that
tasklets may be composed out of parts of the thread they were created
on.  This means that if you try and run them on another thread.. I'm
not sure what happens.  Is it possible that is your problem?  I find
it a little hard to get a grasp on what you are doing, and exactly
what problem arises from reading your email unfortunately.

Don't worry about it.  2.6 onward should be fine, most of the problems
we've fixed over the years are fixed in the SVN branch.
