Add logging code (such as system_printf to the TimedWait method
immediately before the WFSO call. Add similar code to the Signal method
immediately before the PulseEvent.

The log detail should include the thread id (I _think_ thread_printf
includes this and logs to strace) and a timestamp. 

Process the log file to show both events, in time order, and see if
naything pops out. If not forward me the log. 

Do you have sshd on your machine? Or can you bzip2 and mail me a
build+source tree that shows this symptom and is ready-to-go?
