You've explicitly refused to name an exception, and no one else is
aware of one, so how can we give credence to your claim?

Again, were your claim truly correct, no multithreaded C or C++
software would be stable on such a platform, so it seems like a very
unlikely statement. This is the sort of bug that would be found in the
first week that threading package shipped. The relevant standards have
also required it as long as threads have existed. I am disinclined to
believe it is true without evidence, and you refuse to present

By the way: no one reasonable will think less of you if you later say
you made a mistake. People make mistakes.
