in thread Failing tests of Test::TCP on Windows

The semantics of threads are far easier to reason about, as closing a handle in one thread will close the handle for the complete process for example. When using fork(), this would be unexpected, but when using the fork emulation on Windows, the same happens. This is obvious when you keep in mind that on Windows, fork emulation is implemented through threads, but programmers using fork() do usually not come from Windows and don't think of fork behaving differently.
