You have to lockguard every access to the container; note this
also includes, for instance, container traversal with iterators,
i.e. iterator displacement. Strictly speaking, iterator dereference
should also be lockguarded, although I can say unofficially that
unguarded dereference is OK.

The kind of thread-safety provided by B.MI (and by most
STL implementations) is described at SGI docs:
