When is a tid a lwp and vice versa?

So, say I have a process with one lwp, i.e. no threads: 
what should I have in procinfo_list?  One entry for the
process, with tid=0, or two entries, one with tid=0 and
the other with tid=1?

What if I have two lwp's, how many procinfo entries?
Two or three?

Any clues?

I can hack things so I get no warnings and things work
by doing this:
