Not necessarily.  The demo serves to test a wide variety of 2D 
functionality all in one place.  It has worked very well to point out 
real bugs in the past that we have fixed, though it does have some 
questionable practices inside it that can turn up false bugs and I 
believe its abuse of threading is one such practice.

Send me (off-line) the full stack traces of the failures you were seeing 
and I'll check and see if they occur in areas where it might be trying 
to do graphics from multiple threads at once...
