sorry for the *cough* long delay. 

the attached patch is the 'right way' to deal with this issue IMO. It
also gives us full pthread* support for threads created using the win32
CreateThread call (although I won't officially support that at this
point :}).

Generally speaking, when you find yourself writing the same bit of code
twice, the design is wrong. Anyway, enough said:

2002-09-11  Robert Collins  <>

	* (dll_entry): On thread detach, if the thread hasn't
	exit()ed, do so.
	* (pthread::self): Instantiate a new pthread object 
	when called and none exists.
	(pthread::precreate): Factor out common code.
	(pthread::postcreate): Ditto.
	(pthread::create): Ditto.
	(pthread::exit): Remove the TLS value when we exit to prevent
	double exits.
	* thread.h (pthread): Declare pre- and post-create.
