I tried to explain this better in another post but I'll do so again
in case there's still confusion. I wrote the above in a hurry and so
the description is far from accurate to what I meant. The above
reads that I thought the DLL boundary crossed by allocation and
deallocation was for the threadmon DLL, which obviously isn't
accurate. My actual concern was that the cleanup routine is
registered at the time of creation for the slot, but the individual
TSS pointers would be set to memory allocated at a later point,
possibly in a seperate DLL. So cleanup is registered in the EXE or a
DLL while the memory is allocated in another DLL.
