No this doesn't change anything !

   Reading carefully the WinAPI documentation,
I saw that only the calling thread can access WaitForDebugEvent.

   Maybe if we start a new threead for each run and exit that thread
after the program is terminated, that would release all handles ?

   I am too bad C and WinAPI programmer to test this out myself :(
