This does indeed seem to work -- I get a lot fewer thread terminations now.
There is no noticeable impact to performance of my applications, so I will
continue using this for the moment.  I still have reliability problems,
however.  It can take a couple hours of wall clock time before anything
fails, so it will take me some time to track down the problem.
