Hi Michael,

        I just hit a nasty windows deadlock; and noticed that it's fixed
on master with:

commit 482c52e91fe41a52e68827e9bf64a9736427d517

    vcl: fix Win32 deadlocks from SolarMutexReleaser
        Turned out to be very reproducible ;-) and your fix above (which
looks sensible) fixes it.

        Any reason not to have that in -5-0 ?
