Rays' change for the sempahores, which I accidentally committed as
'cb048fc7c5fdfe82550b8f0a80de2ff5fd64739f' solves this problem for me.

Using Process Explorer I no longer see the handle count increase by two per
loop iteration, the handle count is stable from beginning to end of the

Process Explorer is not the ideal tool for this investigation. The handles
shown in its dialog are *not* specific to the process but are the number of
handles open by the entire system. As such they can change unpredictably (and
hence our confusion over the handle count). Robin pointed me to Sys Internals'
handle.exe application which does a much better job (it is, however, a command
line application, no GUI).

Since this is assigned to Ray I'm going to leave it to him to close the issue,
but this now works as expected for me.
