The problem is that apr_thread_create is completely bogus right now.

The child thread has no access to that pool in apr_thread_t->pool.
If you want a pool in the thread, you should be creating inside
of the thread's function not in apr_thread_create.

And, apr_thread_exit call should *not* be taking in an apr_thread_t
because the child doesn't have access to that either.  

We're enforcing the use of global variables to work around this and 
that's plain wrong.  -- justin
