Hmm, I don't know if I'd blame Netscape. They provided an open interface to
their product (Netscape), its the rest of the world who writes the plug-ins
(Adobe, WebFX, etc).
It may be the interface thats the problem (the plug ins should be written
in Java so they're portable), but I don't know enough about the API.
Anyway, I agree somewhat 'cuz AIX does not have a single plug-in (or Java
support for that matter).

The stop() method throws a ThreadDeath object at the thread to kill it.
Thus when a thread is killed in this manner it dies asynchronously.
The thread will die when it actually receives the ThreadDeath exception.
