Thanks for raising this issue - threading is definitely not my forte,
and it's quite possible that I'm doing something weird. I see,
looking at the docs:

template <typename ScopedLock>
    void wait(ScopedLock& lock);

Danger: This version should always be used within a loop checking that
the state logically associated with the condition has become true.
Without the loop, race conditions can ensue due to possible "spurious
wake ups".

I wasn't aware of the "spurious wake ups" issue. I will fix the code
as you recommended.

That would be great!
