 The thread is never actually launched.  I have only tried it on Java 1.7.   Basically, I
am trying to demonstrate that calling AtomicReference#compareAndSet never returns true when
"expected" is a null value.  So what happens is that the call returns false, the loop is re-entered,
newThread gets blown away, the thread is found, and the loop exits, so the thread is never
launched.  I'm using VFS in a singleton fashion.  Well, I was using it before this issue.
