in thread Win32, fork and XS globals

prone to error with fork() on windows ... simple as that !!

Indeed. I wish there was some way to estimate how many few instances of *nix forking code that work under Windows thanks to despite the fork emulation.

It might then be possible to argue for its removal and that could only benefit threaded code, that is currently hamstrung by 'features' necessary for that emulation.

It's way too late for that of course, but...
