[Gc] Memory leak in multithreaded application

Note that I am using gc 6.8 with no GC_DLL flag.

The start_thread(args) function is the proxy function I was suggesting
to use. It is already there and used when not compiling with the GC_DLL

Investigating source code, the _beginthreadex issue could be solved by
replacing the line 488 in libgc 6.8 win32_threads.c file
	thread_h = CreateThread(lpThreadAttributes,
	thread_h = (HANDLE)_beginthreadex(lpThreadAttributes,

and instering
        _endthreadex( ret );

        return ret;
at line 519 ( at end of start_thread() function).

But changing this and testing the code doesn't remove the leak.
