But won't we have the same initialization problems as I scetched in my
original mail? A global_mutex creates a thread mutex internally, so you
hae to use the same global_mutex for each thread for this to work. Then,
is there really a benefit to using this global_mutex instead of just
wrapping the apr_lock_file with locking/unlocking a mutex with thread
scope?
