Right. If the main thread doesn't actually invoke mainloop(), the
Tcl events don't get dispatched, and the RPC system breaks down,
effectively leading to a deadlock. To prevent application
breakage during startup, a grace period is added in case applications
create threads before starting the mainloop.
