Hmmm... I ran into this when I merged the project with the atomic
templates. I got a JPRT build failure on one of the ARM platforms...
Unfortunately, I didn't save the log files so I can't quote the
error message from the template stuff...

What's the official story on 32-bit platforms? Is that what
bit me in JPRT? i.e., did we still have a 32-bit ARM build
config'ed in JPRT a month or two ago???

Yup these are just statistics... overflow is not a killer.

Coleen asked for the new comments in thread.cpp to be moved
over to column 1. She asked for the new comments in thread.hpp
to be indented with more spaces. I started with 2 spaces and
the variables still didn't stand out. I tried 4 spaces and
they still didn't stand out probably because of the leading
_smr_... So I went with 8 spaces...

Yes, a new pair of eyes on this code is always useful.

Will fix. I tried typing both and neither looked right to me.
(I might be getting blurry eyed with this stuff)...
So I went with the spelling from Coleen's comment... :-)

Thanks for taking another look!!
