I did this, but it turned out that the problem was a logic error that I 
found once I had managed to get a working debugger. However, the Windows 
thread code should now be more robust, so thanks to Andrew and Magnus 
for the suggestions.

This version completes properly on Windows with the regression database.

Left to do:

. improve error checking
. memory leak cleanup
. code cleanup
. docs

I hope to have this done shortly.
