This is expected, because WebKit is not thread safe.

JavaScriptCore is thread safe, but not for using the same context on  
multiple threads, see comments before JSContextGroupCreate() in  
JSContextRef.h for more information. For this reason, any context  
passed from WebKit into callbacks can only be used from main thread.
