You make an unwarranted assumption. For all I know it does not depend
on my changes. It is not impossible, but I doubt it. The problem is
that the different threads involved might be badly coordinated in
certain cases. This is a general problem I have pointed to several
times (without much success).

So why do you make this assumption?
