[Haskell-cafe] thread killed

My Snap handlers communicate with various resource pools, often
through MVars.  Is it possible that MVar deadlock would be causing the
runtime system to kill off a contending thread, giving it a
ThreadKilled exception?  It looks like ghc does do deadlock detection,
but I can't find any docs on how exactly it deals with deadlocks.
