Arghh, I guess the combination of a slow CPU + valgrind doesn't really
push the implementation enough. I found several problems where a thread
wouldn't terminate correctly if it got cancelled while waiting to be
scheduled and some other things.

I committed fixes for lwp/src-pt/lwp.private.h and lwp/src-pt/lwp_pt.c
to CVS, all the testprograms seem to work again.
