Oops. I think you're right. I was thinking of wait()/notify(). Does this
statement from the JLS (
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/second_edition/html/memory.doc.html) mean
that threads enter the synchronized block in FIFO fashion?

"With respect to a lock, the *lock* and *unlock* actions performed by all
the threads are performed in some total sequential order. This total order
must be consistent with the total order on the actions of each thread."
