Source pollution at its finest! Blame MS and IBM for that.
THREAD_TERMINATE is there to provide a win32-like interface in the
mono runtime and since the win32 API defines it, we do it, too.
It seems it's not usd anywhere, yet, though, so in this case I'd suggest
just commenting it out for now.

The best suggestion is: try it out, report the problems you find (better
if with a patch attached:-).
