 I could not reproduce this: could you paste the complete error?

+Ok, I reproduced the issue once running mono in windows (though the
+later runs didn't show the problem).
+To reliably run with dozens of threads on windows you need to
+recompile libgc after making a change to the sources.
+The win32_threads.c file has at line about 10 this line:
+#define MAX_THREADS 64
+Change the number to suit your needs.
+Leaving the bug open: we need to make the change to the pre-compiled
+libgc ourselves.
