BitBucket does have the original w32 profile.c, and I accidentally found 
a way of accessing it. This may be useful for other software archeology 
expeditions. It may not be the best or simplest way, just something that 

Begin from

Select the initial import version of profile.h. Now you have BitBucket 
thinking back to 2000.

Go up to ooo340/sal, and down again to ooo340/sal/osl/w32. You will now 
see the list of w32 file names as they were in 2000, including profile.c 
rather than profile.cxx.

The original profile.c includes a log going back to "Revision 1.1 
1997/07/17 11:02:31".

Do you read German? Some of the log entries are in German, and I don't 
have much faith in machine translation of very short snippets of 
technical material.

There are mentions of "locking" but I am reasonably sure that means file 
locking rather than pthread_mutex.
