No - your program is broken.  Read the comments in <pthread.h>, e.g.:

/* Install a cleanup handler: ROUTINE will be called with arguments ARG
   when the thread is cancelled or calls pthread_exit.  ROUTINE will also
   be called with arguments ARG when the matching pthread_cleanup_pop
   is executed with non-zero EXECUTE argument.
   pthread_cleanup_push and pthread_cleanup_pop are macros and must always
   be used in matching pairs at the same nesting level of braces. */

The last two lines are important.
