hmm.  i  haven't noticed any differences. i may have missed something,
though.  but,  if this handle is supposed to be inheritable, shouldn't
it  be  DuplicateHandle()'d  in  child  process?  I've grepped through
sources  and haven't find any DuplicateHandle() used on semaphores. so
even   if   this   handle  is  made inheritable, i don't see the place
where child is using it.
