I have only seen an invalid handle error and I think it makes sense
since it's possible that the thread has disappeared when this function
is called.  I thought it happened when the main thread exits before
some other thread.

I think adding the tid is a good idea so if you want to merge the
two that's fine with me.  I've been meaning to dust off my changes
and submit them for approval anyway so you'd save me that step.
