I'm not sure it is the correct behavior under Windows.
When debugging a single thread app, I do receive one New Thread message (for the main thread of the inferior), but there is not corresponding exit thread message report for this main thread. For multiply thread apps, the first New Thread messages has no corresponding exit messages, but other threads have both new and their corresponding exit messages.
Corresponding messages have the same thread ID like:
[New Thread 2628.0xa4c]
[Thread 2628.0xa4c exited with code 0]
