+There is some information about this bug on the Boehm mailing list
+The solution seems that someone found was:
+"First, after a few seconds of thread creation and destruction i always
+run into an error that GC_stop_world calls SuspendThread on an invalid
+handle. The windows GetLastError() code is 6. This happens with 6.6
+and 6.7 and is very repeatable for me. First i tried to catch this
+situation and simply close the handle in the thread table when such a
+situation came up but this did not help very much.
+Also the comment above in the function told me that i'm not the
+first one who had this problem.
+So i solved it by using GC_CreateThread and linking to a static
+compiled library instead of using the DLL magic. I never had invalid
+handles anymore."
+I do not know what the "dll magic" is that they are talking about on
+that thread.
