Yes, the variables are essentially global.  The placement of the User
Parameters in the tree 
controls when the variables get set/updated, after which they are available
to everyone.

You can embed a function as a value in the User Parameters, and it will get
periodically (depending on where in the tree you put the User Parameters and
other options 
you select).  This is only available in the 1.9 code.

Your plan of creating values for a number of users 1 less than the number of
threads wouldn't 
work since the threads get fixed with a particular user in the User
Parameters.  If you have 1 
less set of variables defined than threads, then the last thread and the
first thread would share 
the same values.
