XBMC hangs in popen since 295.20
In XBMC we use popen with nvidia-settings to get the display refreshrate, since 295.20 this often hangs in the child process, 295.33 shows the same behavior.
The backtrace shows that the child process hangs on locking a mutex:

Backtrace stopped: previous frame inner to this frame (corrupt stack?)

This only happens when using OpenGL from one thread, and popen from another, it never hangs if popen is called from the render thread.
If the mutex was locked by another thread at the time the process is forked, it will never be unlucked in the child process, since the thread that originally locked it doesn't exist there.

Bump. It happens in 295.33 too. PLEASE FIX IT. It makes xbmc very unstable :(

295.40 is affected.

Attached a simple testcase (it will hang with the affected drivers) and nvidia-bug-report.log.gz.
