I think we need to set the context before the first gl call in a thread. It 
should be enought to do a ckeck in ENTER_GL() if a context is set for the 
current thread, and if not create one and set it.

I think we need a mutex or something simmilar for all the object structures

Multithreaded d3d was one of the reasons for my decision to port ddraw over to 
wined3d. Once it's implemented in wined3d all versions have it :)
