The failing thread tests in perls testsuite are unfortunately not so simple.
Mostly torture tests.
google's threadsanitizer might come handy.
I found a lot of perl bugs with the related addresssanitizer.

I'm pretty sure it's perls fault here, because mingw has the same problems.
And the were some subtle changes between 5.10 and 5.14. I tried to improve
it with a patch, but it didn't help much.
