I am re-forwarding this message to the pthread group, as the previous 
try bounced due to HTML formatting....


Are using pthread_mutex_destroy() ?

Are you declaring local mutexes on the stack, or globally?

Mutexes are generally meant to be of global scope!

You need pthread_mutex_destroy(), or appropriate code reorganization.

I would not be surprised if you also have a handle leak on some of these 
other platforms.
