if I read this correctly, it will allow me to overwrite the asumption that
the VM is started on multicore. But it will not avoid the crash if the
flag is not set.
Wouldnt it be safer to do something like this:
if initial number of cores < 2 then start in "no parallel" mode which will
block using parallel features unless you set "+AsumeMP"?
Because otherwise you will still see random crashes and can only use the
flag after the fact to avoid them. (if I understood the code correct).
