In general multi-threaded is working pretty well in the OSG.  It is
more complex though, and there are certainly more potential for
failure.   Individual things like osgviewerMFC have their own issues
several which have been fixed in 2.1.x so I'd suggest checking this
before making any generalisations.

1.2 didn't have a MFC example.  The MFC example that did exist on the
wiki was single threaded as far as I know.
