I just spent at least ten minutes looking for a "mu_to" in cygwin,
trying to figure out what you were referring to.  I'm not sure why
you're putting an underscore in the middle there.  Maybe you're thinking
that the "mu" and "to" have separate meanings but they really don't.

Did you actually see mutos not getting created?  Looking at the code
now, it seems like there would be a new muto created every time
there is a new instance of timer_tracker, which was certainly wrong but
it is different from mutos not being created after a fork.
