That doesn't completely fix it either, because
ForgetBackgroundWorker() also does
BackgroundWorkerData->parallel_terminate_count++, which we might also
fail to see, which would cause RegisterDynamicBackgroundWorker() to
bail out early.  There are CPU ordering effects to think about here,
not just the order in which the operations are actually performed.
