It is possible to compile Perl with threads enabled / disabled. The Perl you 
are using to install IC has been compiled with threads enabled. This has 
been known to cause instability of your IC performance. 

So the suggestion is to use a Perl that is not having threads enable. For 
that you should download the Perl source and configure/install it without 
threads enabled. And then you should be using that Perl to run IC. 

If I'm correct things have improved a lot in the threads area, so this 
warning is not as urgent as it has been before I think. You could give it a 
go with the current Perl.
