Mac and Win VMs have only heartbeat threads.  Linux VMs have either a heartbeat thread or the ITIMER heartbeat.  If the linux archive contains  "ht" it's a threaded heartbeat VM, period.  The naming is screwed up because ITIMER used to be the only option on linux.  Would changing the names so that linux ITIMER VMs were singled out be useful?
