I've seen these failures for a long time now, but have not been bothered
enough by them to do anything about it (m4 is single-threaded, so I use
gnulib-tool --avoid tls-tests to avoid the test in the first place).

I hope to have more time to investigate these failures in the near future,
since I'm in the middle of changing jobs.  But meanwhile, it wouldn't hurt
to post these as simple test cases to explain on the cygwin list that
there has been a regression between 1.5.x and 1.7.1.  Also, there have
been some patches for the upcoming 1.7.2 that may impact pthreads.

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
