With respect to this issue
any comments on this potential fix
would be appreciated.
Rudimentary testing with JMH (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/code-tools/jmh/) did not reveal any deleterious performance effects in single-threaded operation nor any obvious improvements in the dual threaded case but testing was done on on my aging Core 2 Duo notebook and is not likely representative of anything approaching real world conditions.
