Review request for kdelibs and Michael Pyne.


Added error text printing, as requested by mpyne at .
Please note: strerror() is not thread-safe, so we have to use strerror_r(), which doesn't exists everywhere. So I've added another CMake check, and if it fails, still print error code directly.


- Remove "support" for thread-shared-only locks: they do not help at all but makes app crash instead of slowly work; lack of decent locks to be resolved later.
- Add error checking with console printouts.
- Consistently use "::" before global functions.

Probably failed mutexes should be destroyed in case of some errors, any thoughts?

This addresses bug 305023.
