These two are the same. The one you pointed to before
(__rw_facet::_C_manage at line 366) is a different one.

Now that we know what's causing the deadlock (and that
we can't use the same mutex in the inline function),
let's see if we can fix it in __rw_get_numpunct()
(and __rw_get_moneypunct()).

Here's a thought: it's not pretty but how about having
the function initialize the facet? It already has a pointer
to the base class, so it could downcast it to std::numpunct
(or moneypunct, respectively), and assign the initial values
to the members. Would that work?
