There is a threadvar called "threadid" in the system unit. When a new  
thread is started, GetCurrentThreadID is called to obtain the thread  
id of the new thread (via the thread manager) and the result is stored  
in the threadid threadvar. GetThreadID simply returns the value of  
this threadvar.

So in summary: there is no semantic difference.
