As discussed in the thread the documentation of GHC.Conc.throwTo is not 100% clear on the provided atomicity guarantees.

In I proposed a patch for said documentation but it seems to have slipped through the cracks. Can somebody please have a look and - hopefully - apply it?

I'll add it to Austin's patch queue, by changing the status to 'please review' (you can do this too). As you discovered, if there isn't a ticket, it's easily lost.
