Thanks.  Could you try this patch?
I tried it but I'm seeing an odd regression.  I get a segv in the utf8
comparison function.  I know I've seen this before but I don't recall
what it means and I don't want to track it down right now.

It seemed to make sense to put this stuff in FirstThread since that
class is already used for bootstrapping.
