SPUG: Multi-threading in ActiveState Perl 5.6.1 crashes

Greetings Spuggers,

I just found out about (and joined) this list.  I work on a large
multi-threaded Java application that calls PerlEmbed through
JNI.  We've had to serialize all calls to PerlEmbed due to
perl crashes when we don't.

A little Googling indicates others see the same intermittent
problems with multi-threading and Perl.

Anyone know the latest on this issue?  Is Perl 5.8 better?
Is CPAN Perl better than ActiveState?
