Is that insufficient patch at least going to be merged in the 1.44?
Can you tell us, if already digged into it, why is not enough, so we
can try to cover even the corner case you forecasted.

I had a look at the patch and what it does is basicaly what the man

shall be locked by the thread calling pthread_cond_broadcast() or

I don't have a clue on how the merges are managed, but for what is
