The number of Win32 developers who are knowledgeable about this area are 
fairly small, so any patches you may have are certainly welcomed.  However, I 
will point out that it's probably been that way for years without anyone 
caring enough to fix it.

I don't know a thing about Win32, so I'm of no help.  And, suspect that to be 
the case for the majority of APR developers.  I also doubt it's a problem in 
the API - so fixes to the Win32 condition variables can be done in APR 1.0.1 
if someone steps up and fixes it.  But, a 1.0 showstopper?  I say no.  But, 
adding a warning to the 1.0 release notes sounds fine to me.  -- justin
