[LAD] FST and JUCE-based plugins

I have noticed that all JUCE-based vst plugins do not work in fst (at  
least their GUI and their internal message passing stuff). The reason  
is that the JUCE framework is initialising its internal machinery (a  
MessageManager etc) during the first call to the VST entrypoint, and  
if the later call to effEditOpen is performed from a different thread,  
then all sort of terrible things happens, and it ends with a deadlock.

There is a discussion in the JUCE forum here:

Please note that I'm not asking for a fix, but I just want to let the  
FST developers know about this problem !
