    If you are silly enough to call GetCurrentThread() rather than 
GetCurrentThreadId() you really are asking for trouble and also haven't

    Grab an NT or WIN32 book and read up on what gets cleaned up and
what doesn't when threads are blown away with cleanup and also the

    Is anyone who is working on ApacheNT doing any multi-processor testing?
