This is now checked in.  In the end, I implemented a new method for
passing off an acquired muto to another thread.  This avoids the need
for allocating another event.  I can use this technique elsewhere, too.

So, I revamped window.cc and did a minor revamp and cleanup on mutos.
This is not something I would have expected anyone else to do.

Thanks again for putting the effort into producing a patch.  In the end,
I just decided to go with my original observation that this code needed
some major work.  And, I'm not done yet...
