Subject Patch for Win32 thread deadlock
Date Fri, 16 Jul 2004 21:40:10 GMT

	Patch for Win32 thread deadlock, tested only on multi-processor XP.
The problem occurs if the thread calls apr_thread_exit() thus closing the
shared handle; and then the main thread tries to join the closed thread with
a bad handle or has already joined the thread.  

	You can not close a handle while there is a process using that
handle in WaitForSingleObject().  
		"If this handle is closed while the wait is still pending,
the function's behavior is undefined. "
