Hi, thanks for the patch.  Someone needs to make a github pull request for it.  Can you do
that, or would you like me to?

> In TNamedPipeServer, there exists a race condition between the 'serve' thread and another
thread that would attempt to interrupt it.
> While the 'serve' thread is waiting for clients to connect, it is blocked on a GetOverlappedResult
> To stop the server, another thread calls the interrupt function that submits a CANCELIO
operation to the TOverlappedSubmissionThread.
> The ::CancelIo function is called, freeing the 'serve' thread with an unsuccessful OvelappedResult
which then throws and terminate the server by deleting the serverTransport_.
> All this can happen while the call to interrupt has not yet returned, and even the event
signaling the execution of the CANCELIO request might not have been caught.
> In our code, this result in unpredictable behavior (mostly detected as stalled).
> It is very hard to reproduce in test environment as it consists in a running threads
race condition.
