Under Windows everything works fine, but under Linux my app keeps
The project is tiOPF v2 (TechInsite Object Persistent Framework).
There is a class called TtiPool, that handles a pool of database
When I run the Unit Tests and create a single Lock and the Unlock it,

then call unlock 10 times, the Unit Tests freeze on the following line
with the second iteration:
if sem_wait(FSemaphore) <> 0 then

Now, I have to admit, I don't know much about Semaphore's... Anybody
know of some good documentation or tutorial on the net?
Anything obvious I could be doing wrong?
