That is a case of process termination.  Process termination blows
away threads. If you have any other threads beside the initial one,
and those threads have associated TSD, they will be stopped dead in
their tracks without any opportunity to execute destructors. So why
should the main thread's destructors be executed?

Meta-CVS: the working replacement for CVS that has been stable for two
years.  It versions the directory structure, symbolic links and execute
permissions. It figures out renaming on import. Plus it babysits the kids
and does light housekeeping!
