List the threads active. But I think i can just request this whenever I 
need it.

That's fine. What I wanted to know is if it got bound at all at some 
point. Before libraries are loaded they are surely unbound, and while 
they might trigger in multiple places at some point, i just need to know 
if the user didn't put one at a bad place.
