Re^3: [Win32] pthreads and memory allocationby BrowserUk (Pope)

I think that the problem is likely that malloc has been redefined by the Perl/XS headers and the Perl code that gets called is trying to access the perl thread context for the "current" thread. Which of course doesn't exist because the thread was not created by Perl.
See Re: Win32::Internet crash, XS, callbacks, perl stack & context, windows api, interpreter thread safety, 1 perl, many C threads by windows for previous related discussion on the problem.
See also Perl crash during perl_clone for a long and twisty thread where I worked through the same problem to a successful conclusion.
