[M3devel] Win32 SuspendThread?

I'm very concerned about the threading not working properly on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows.

The Thread Test program crashes for me on both platforms.

I haven't tried your new test program yet.

 This program also doesn't behave as expected, native, nothing to do with wow64.
 Anyone else please confirm:
   1) my expectations -- it should never print anything
   2) their importance  -- garbage collector depends on it
   3) their not being met -- stuff gets printed
 This is in the CVS repository, scratch/wow64stack/sync2.cpp
 I am following up further.
 Maybe we should get cooperative suspend really going?
Thank you.

  UINT i = 0;
  while (1)
    i += 1;
    if (SuspendThread(thread) == (DWORD)-1)
      printf("suspend failed %X\n", GetLastError());
    volatile long a = value;
    volatile long b = value;
    if (a != b)
     printf("%d %d %d %d\n", i, a, b, b - a);
