Yes. I've done some more tests now myself and it works as it should. I
guess the crashes I saw when I first tried the critical sections weren't
because of them but because of something else.

The critical sections never made it into the repository - I had a crash
right at the beginning when I tried them. I then switched to Mutexes and
tested again where I didn't get a crash. Seems the crashs weren't
because of the critical sections - maybe the crash didn't happen with
the mutexes because they're slower? I don't know.

I committed a change in revision 2348 which makes the shell extension
use critical sections instead of mutexes. I did some testruns with
multiple processes and it didn't crash. But I would appreciate it if you
could do some tests yourself - you once told me that you have a four
processor system available ;)
