win32 shared_mutex constructor leaks on exceptions

Reported by: phrosty@… Owned by: viboes
Milestone: Boost 1.49.0 Component: thread
Version: Boost 1.47.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: shared_mutex Cc: viboes


shared_mutex's contructor contains three calls to create_anonymous_semaphore(), each of which can throw. If one of these throws, the unprotected handles of the previous ones will leak.

Thanks for this report. I will try to solve it soon.

In order to avoid a chained try-catch a no_throw create_anonymous_semaphore_nothrow function can be used like in

            if (!semaphores[exclusive_sem])
            if (!upgrade_sem)

While this is not too elegant it solves the issue. A RAI handle would be also appreciated.
