I'm still having problems with OpenMP and the x86_64 MinGW compilers -
code which can run fine on Linux with any number of threads (mapped to
different cores) still will only use one core on an i5 quad core

According to my understanding, mingw compiler versions aren't supported
on this list, notwithstanding that cygwin install is probably the best
way to get them. However, that compiler gives me good OpenMP
performance on 6 of 10 test cases, running on an early core I7 with
HyperThread disabled, Win7SP1. GOMP_AFFINITY setting as well as
avoiding Hyper-Threading are likely more important on Windows than
linux. Win7SP1 is particularly important when using Hyper-Threading.
