I've just checked in a superset of this patch. I deleted a lot more
stuff from window.cc (and wininfo.h) and added a method to cygthread
which allows passing an event which will be signalled when an auto
release thread exits. This allows waiting for a thread to exit without
resorting to a busy loop. I also cleaned up the locking a little.
This passes all of the apppropriate timer_* tests from the
posixtestsuite (http://posixtest.sourceforge.net/) but there are still a
couple of problems with nanosleep. I'll get to those in the next couple
Thanks for the patch.
