The thread id returned by a call to GetCurrentThreadId() in the main thread
changes if another thread is created and then terminated. The main thread
starts with a thread id of 1, and a spawned thread gets a thread id of 2,
but then once the spawned thread exits, a call to GetCurrentThreadId in the
main thread returns 2, not 1. 
The following trivial patch seems to fix this problem in at least some cases.  I'm not familiar with the v8 source and haven't checked for any adverse consequences of the patch.
