Sorry, but in your test the reader deletes mutexes in use and creates
them again with the same name. This means that the writer and the reader
don't shared the same mutex!

Regarding permissions, I think there is a problem in the function
"unlink_file" of boost/interprocess/detail/win32_api.hpp. It seems that
trying to to do a "normal" delete is not a good idea for already
unrestricted permission files so please comment
