The documentation server is back up.

Still down for me, but from google's cache:

"Terminates the specified thread immediately, or suspends the thread if thd was created with thread/suspend-to-kill." http://74.125.155.132/search?q=cache:kdhjq2ukTtgJ:download.p...

So it seems kill-thread is guaranteed to kill the thread by the time it returns.

Oh, but break-thread is not: "Registers a break with the specified thread." http://docs.plt-scheme.org/reference/threads.html#%28def._%2... "When a break is detected and enabled, the exn:break exception is raised in the thread sometime afterward" http://docs.plt-scheme.org/reference/breakhandler.html
