Your previous message said that the standard is clear on it (unless when
you said "nothing but clear" you meant to say "anything but clear" --
your name and email address suggest that you're not a native English
speaker, so you might not know the idioms correctly).

Oh gosh, yes, you're perfectly right - thanks for fixing that. I meant
that the opengroup pages were _NOT_ clear at all.

Generally speaking, I find the POSIX spec a bit unclear regarding thread
issues and/or seems a bit "unaware" of it (like in this case) time to time.
