           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2

Windows version of Mutex.lock() should ASSERT on re-entrance.  The pthread code
does not use the flag that allows re-entrance, so we should protect against
Windows developers writing code that depends on re-entrance.  An ASSERT seems
like the right solution since doing so it not fatal, it's just something we
want people to avoid.

I'll send out a patch soon.
