mutex - owning thread?
« on: May 08, 2012, 12:44:45 PM »
Is there a way to find the owning thread of a std::mutex?  It would be desirable to see this both live and especially in crash dumps.

No, there isn't. The normal build of the library does not track this information. The checked build does, but this is not available outside the deadlock-detection code. For one thing, it could change between the call being made and the information being used.
