Still looking at.
Looks good. Thank you for the changes.
If you do another round to fix any bugs could you possibly change:
line 372 "to stop it while it happens" to "ensure no threads at safepoint create
new records while the records are being gathered and the sequence number is changing"
line 512/513 change "wait until" to "try at a later sync point to ensure"
