I just tested if iterator debugging is thrread-safe.

#include <thread>
#include <string>
#include <semaphore>

using namespace std;

int main()
{ constexpr size_t N = 1ull << 20;
binary_semaphore semZero( false );
jthread thread;
{
binary_semaphore semHalf( 0 );
string str( N, '*' );
thread = jthread( [&]( string &str )
{
char sum = 0;
for( string::iterator it = str.begin(), brk = it + N / 2, end =
str.end(); it != end; *it++ = '+' )
if( it == brk )
semHalf.release( 1 ),
semZero.acquire();
}, ref( str ) );
semHalf.acquire();
}
semZero.release( 1 );
}

So with iterator debugging you can have use after free protection at
least with MSVC. I tried that with g++'s libstdc++ (-D_GLIBCXX_DEBUG)
and libc++ (-D_LIBCPP_DEBUG=1) and I get a normal crash instead of
debugging information.
