You can use GPrivate to get this effect -- allocate something in a
GPrivate and during thread teardown, the cleanup handler for that thing
will be called.

Hope that helps.

Yes, that certainly *does* help, and thanks again. I'll wander off and give all this a try, and then see if there's a way to write up an app note on it.

Meanwhile, do you think the doc changes I proposed seem sensible? Far as I can tell, they're just making the current behavioral contract explicit. If they make sense, I can submit a but report with a patch in the next few days.
