I did. There are 12440 race conditions detected for an incomplete run
of 22.locale.numpunct.mt. By incomplete I mean: it did not run with
its default nthreads and nloops which I believe are 8 threads and
200000 loop iterations.

I presented a *proposal* fix which:

1. keeps your _numpunct.h forwarding patch
2. eliminates 100% of the race conditions

I have yet to see a counter-proposal.

The only thing i've seen are assertions ("race condition
instrumentation and detection tools are wrong"), mischaracterizations
("your patch is evil") and overall just email bullshit.

Not a single line of code which would resolve the 12440 race conditions problem.
