I'm definitely no expert on this, but there's something that bothers me
about conditions in general and this implementation in particular. The
Win32 CriticalSection used is a *recursive* mutex. Meaning that the
LeaveCriticalSection() used inside pthread_cond_wait() doesn't guaranty
the the mutex is actually unlocked. Insuring this requires counting the
number of times the mutex was locked before entering
pthread_cond_wait(). Is this a problem? Is there any reference to the
difference between a condition with recursive mutex to a condition with
non-recursive mutex?

Just some thoughts I wanted to share...
