Doubt it, it *looks* OK. But the acid test is to run it on Windows.

I've not used the mutex APIs much though, so could well be wrong.

Well, this must be a Wine internal critical section and 0 is an invalid 
thread ID. So it looks like something is going badly wrong inside Wine.

What does the backtrace of thread 9 look like?
