Sorry to bring this up again, but today I was showing someone a
program of mine when I realized how dependent it is on the current
CROSS_PROCESS semantics.  It won't work with LOCKALL semantics.

(This program shows me which lock mechanisms block out other threads
in the same process.  I'd be lost without it :) )
