Subject Re: deadlock in FastByIDMap.find() ?

If he's using the normal class APIs, then shouldn't matter what the
heck is being done to the class. I can't spot a problem that would
fill up the hash table.

I don't think he's messing with the implementation or data structures directly?

But yes I am still quite puzzled, I haven't seen this, can't reproduce
it even with some tests that guess at pathological patterns, and can't
see anything wrong with the logic. I'm stumped on this one.
