Which brings us back to the initial patch by Francois...
Just as francois I don't really see why it's racy - it's just allowing 
to read an atomic state variable from outside. But I surely miss 
something due to lack of knowledge about the stream_Demux internals?

What about just having sys->finished? Atomic init to false on creation 
and atomic write to true right after demux_Delete in DStreamThread?
