You are absolutely right. This didn't work, and the key parameter was
not needed at all.
Further, the thread local variable needs to be initialized with
calloc() and not malloc(). There are fixes in the tls-fixes branch of
If you can try them out, I'd appreciate it.
A related question: Is there any support in the Windows versions of
GCC for either __thread or __declspec(thread)?
