I'm not asking if this is undefined behavior; it clearly is.  I'm
asking whether the second of these two calls is actually the one that
crashes Emacs with SIGSEGV.  IOW, does the crash happen inside the
second call to pthread_mutex_unlock?  And the next question would be
why doesn't it crash for me on another GNU/Linux system?

Thanks.
