This is great news! Thanks for all the great work.
Robert, The first "simple" testcase is gcc itself (configured with
--enable-threads=posix), since gcc uses a very small subset of pthreads
functionality, and that's what I'm going to try as soon as I get a
chance to update my local tree. For a now-(temporarily-)abondoned glibc
port to win32, I used the testcases from pthreads-win32 project ,
and some from the GNU Pth project  (I don't remember what my success
rate was, only that it wasn't that high).
ps: The Reply-To is set to cygwin-apps; isn't this more appropriate for
cygwin-dev list? I'm pruning cygwin-xfree.
