I have been out for a while, that's why I haven't sent you this email before.

Thanks for all your help. I'm not anymore limited to 2MB of thread stack

Now my limitation is 8MB (which is definitely better!) and I'm wondering if
there is a way to have a bigger one?
Or is it a kernel limitation ?

Thank you for your time,
