The reason here is that the rewrite of the debugging stuff makes use of
atomic refcounting which needs threading to be initialized, when you use
the fallback implementation only. Since we all use the x86 or ppc specific
optimizations, nobody noticed so far. I'm gonna look at this later today,
thanks for pointing it out.

Yeah, I didn't look at gst-editor when doing the debugging rewrite. So it
probably is broken right now.
Somebody with more knowledge in gst-editor than me might want to fix that.
