This patch improves and simplifies Thread.join() by making sure that the
__bootstrap() method is finished before join() returns. While it does
improve the resource deallocation behaviour, it is still enough for
solving all refleak detection hazards (see #7222).

This patch relies on ref counting behavior, an unfortunate side-effect
for other implementations.

Indeed. Let's consider it closed then.
