[Vortex] Rebol Script-Binding / Callback Problem

Hi, I'm currently writing an Rebol-3 extension for Vortex. Rebol-3 supports a simple callback interface which I use to communicate between Vortex lib and Rebol.

The problem is that the callback (from an on_accept_handler) crashes the Rebo interpreter. I assume this has something to do with multi-threading.

1. Is there a way to run Vortex without multi-threading?

2. Is there a way to get back the number of running threads? As it's the first callback after a connect, I think there shouldn't be any threads running.

3. I used a mutex around the callback code to avoid any multi-thread clashes. No effect, still crashes the interpreter.

4. Any other ideas what I could try? I want to note that the chance exists that the problem is in the Rebol-3 interpreter. I just want to track it further down.

Thanks a lot.
