That is intentional behaviour; it is not safe to allow multi-threaded access to global variables since there is no opportunity to implement safety during their manipulation, therefore no steps are taken to make globals available since they are not safe.

The solution is to set data you wish to share between contexts as a member of an object descended from pthreads where every thread that requires access has a reference to the data.
