I don't have the time to make the change and then go through a
stabilization period. You're on your own. Sorry.

Look at the archives about this. There were two solutions discussed. One
moved a statement out of a synchronized() block. It wasn't correct
synchronization but I think the author of the patch claimed that it
worked. I believe I speculated at the time that the correct solution was
to add some kind of refcounting to certain objects. I don't remember the
details. If you locate the thread in the archives send me a pointer and
I'll see if I can narrow it down further.
