First, you are locking mutex1 in one thread - main(), and unlocks it in thread
which did not lock it - thread1(), thread2().
Second, you uses mutex1 for pthread_cond_wait() call (without locking it first).
Third, it is advisable to call pthread_cond_signal() / pthread_cond_broadcast()
with the associated mutex locked, and pthreads-win32 requests this.
And - each time check pthread_*() return values, even in the test code!
Hope this helps you
