I am assuming that a new thread is being spawned for printing stack trace, so depending upon main/new thread currently active, the output is displayed. I am using jdk 1.6. Is my assumption right?

The stack traces are going to System.err and System.out.println statements are going to System.out and both of them are dumping the content onto the same console. Each of these streams individually dump the content onto the same console without any consideration of the other stream. But within each stream, the messages will be printed in order.
