[gclist] Boehm-Weiser collector and WIN32 threads

I have looked at the standard collector and it all seems to work quite
nicely (with Borland C++ 5.02).

I am fairly ignorant on this, but what are the main issues when you are
using a multi-threaded program in relation to garbage collection? I assume
that there are multiple stacks and processor register values to check for,
before doing a garbage collect.

Unfortunately I have not been able to get the collector to work with WIN32
threads enabled (which was added in the latest version).  I just get a
GPF. If anyone has got it to work with Borland's compiler I would be
grateful for a few pointers as to compiler settings etc.
