Thanks for the testcase!  I could easily reproduce the problem and it
turned out that it was a miserable copy/paste bug.  Due to that the
function opening the mutex object in the second process requests more
access than the process creating the mutex has granted other processes.
Consequentially the second process got a "Permission denied".

I've fixed the bug in CVS.  The next 1.7.0 test release or the next
developer snapshot on (whatever comes
first) will have the patch.

Thanks again for the testcase and the report,
