If you want to try it out, let me know and I can send it to

Looking at the mini-pthreads code for win32, I skipped (as would be expected, I guess) right to pthread_cond_wait().

And after a few minutes of looking at it (and at the pthreads-win32 sources from[1]), I'm not convinced it's completely right. My gripe is with the unlocked reads/writes to _cond->waiting in

For instance, two threads calling signal() and seeing waiting == 1 may
each call ReleaseSemaphore() and later decrement it down to -1.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
