The only RTL that currently really does something inside CloseThread is 
the Windows RTL which calls CloseHandle like TThread.SysDestroy does. So 
it would probably best to adjust the TThread implementation to always 
call CloseThread as well and remove the CloseHandle in the Windows 
implementation of TThread.SysDestroy call...
