Hi Michael, I realise this wouldn't be recommended practice, but would
these leaks only occur when resources (by that I mean mutexes, threads,
conditions etc) deleted? As I've said, I create all needed objects at
application startup and free them at exit, so I'm not so worried about
leaks as they wouldn't be happening while the application is running,
only at the end when the OS should clean up anyway? If so, then I am
willing to risk running the thread library as a static lib still.
