FAILURE!
> The problem appears to be in the interaction between wakup and runTask in PooledTaskRunner
> iterating is set to false in a finally  and queued is checked in a separate sync block.
> if wakeup is called in this window, it can set queued and find iterating false so it
will execute, and runTask will find queued true and it too will execute.
> the fix is to include the queued check in the finally block so that iterating and queued
are checked at the same time. I will attach a patch with this fix.
> I attempted to reproduce this problem with a unit test but I did not have any real success.
the window is quite small. I will include the unit test in case it can be improved upon.
> chirino merged a fix yesterday that addresses the symptom of this issue in a different
way,
> http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=650956
> The added synchronisation means that parallel calls by the PooledTaskRunner.asyncWrite
are serialised on the method access.
> This fix addresses the route cause and can negate the need for the synchronisation.
> fyi: In the test, the paralell calls can come from flush() and from the asyncWrite task.
