Sorry for reviving this older thread, but I have the same question. Here’s another similar/same example where julia is started with `julia -t 1,1`

, and the method “bar” blocks the method “foo”, which is not what I expected. This is with Julia 1.9.3.

```
function foo()
x = 0
tic = time()
while true
if time() - tic > 30
break
end
println("inside interactive loop, x=$x")
x += 1
sleep(1)
end
end
function bar()
x = 1
c = -1
d = 3
tic = time()
while true
if time() - tic > 30
break
end
x += c/d
c *= -1
d += 2
end
@info "bar, after 30 seconds, pi is $(4*x)"
end
tsk = Threads.@spawn :interactive foo()
bar()
wait(tsk)
```

output:

```
[ Info: bar, after 30 seconds, pi is 3.1415926521589954
