I know you are basically reverting to the original code here, but I think the original code still allows multiple threads to initialize. (Geof, please correct me where I'm wrong).

We are very close to switching to VS2013, which will allow us to use "std::call_once", which might be a better cross-platform solution.

It seems like this should be done using the old "check->lock mutex->check again" construct.  It seems like this logic still gives us a chance for two threads to initialize the global wordlist.

Shouldn't it be something like (pseudocode below):

static mutex initializationMutex;

Worklist* initializeGlobalWOrklist()
    pthread_once(&initializeGlobalWorklistKeyOnce, initializeGlobalWorklistOnce);
    static bool initializedGlobalWorklist = false;
    if (!initializedGlobalWorklist) {
        ScopedLock locker(intializationMutex);
        if (!initializedGlobalWorklist) {
             initializeGlobalWorklist = true;

> +    if (!initializedCompilationThreads) {

Ditto above. I think we can double-initialize with this logic.
