Alternative suggestion: If pthread_cond_init() is implemented in the stubs to 
return "okay", then I could imagine pthread_cond_[timed]wait() to also work in 
some way.

Otherwise, if the former already signals an error, using a condition variable 
that wasn't even successfully initialized can well abort or misbehave in any 
other way it likes.
