I'm using ThreadPool (Manager) sample from chapter 16.2 of APG.
I'm starting it as
ThreadPool.activate(); <- I tried different settings but it did not

I have to process large array on handle_timeout() so I decided to do
it by using thread pool.

Yes. This is what I'm thinking. I just needed simple and local thread
pool implementation and I was hoping ACE_Task will do the trick. But
it looks like ACE_Task activate() overwrites something global.
