This might depend on yur project being a "console-app" (generally based
single-threaded) did you switch to multithreaded-dll in code generation ?
(Better use empty win32 app instead of console app, when compiling with

Betreff: [SDL] Possible race condition in SDL_mixer

Using SDL 1.2.0 with the corresponding SDL_mixer on NT4, if I compile
and run the attached program in the debugger, it usually hangs while
calling Mix_CloseAudio.  (sometimes it doesn't)

If you comment out the SDL_Delay ( 1000 ), all of a sudden I don't get
a hang.

This is happening with VC6 SP5, the program being compiled as a
console app.

Anybody else see this?  I'd rather not have to put a SDL_Delay in my
program and cross my fingers.

I realize programs like this don't come around very often, but this
really threw me off while debugging my program.
