(You are missing '(run-fibers' at the beginnng.  Presumably this was
just a pasting error on your part.)

With that omission corrected, it used to work with guile-2.2.  Something
seems to have changed with guile-3.0, because it only works for me with
guile-3.0 if you set #:drain? to #t in the call to run-fibers.  Without
that, run-fibers appears to return before init-thunk returns.

So it seems that there is either a bug in the manual or in the fibers
implementation, probably the latter.

TL;DR, and I do not either like or use GOOPS, so I am not sure what you
are doing anyway. But try setting #:drain? to #t.
