IsAlive should be: public bool IsAlive { get { if(m_ThreadHandle.SafeWaitHandle.IsClosed) { return false; } Debug.Assert(m_ThreadObj != null); bool handleSignaled = m_ThreadHandle.WaitOne(0,true); while(handleSignaled && m_ThreadObj.IsAlive) { Thread.Sleep(0); } return m_ThreadObj.IsAlive; } }

Remove this text: However, because Kill() is called on the client thread, the WorkerThread object must store a Thread object referring to the worker thread as a member variable. Fortunately, there is already such a member-the m_ThreadObj member variable. You can only store the thread value in the thread method; you can't store it in the constructor, which executes on the creating client's thread. This is exactly what Run() does in this line: m_ThreadObj = Thread.CurrentThread;
