> In the above code , a block is synchronized on klasses field. Before the synchronized
block, klasses is assigned to a new value.
> Consequence: 
> Different threads will synchronize on different klasses objects because it has been assigned
to a new value. It  breaks the mutual exclusion and update on klasses would be lost.
> I suggest to rewrite it as follow:
> public final class Permissions extends PermissionCollection implements Serializable {
>    private static final Object monitor = new Object();
> ...
> private void readObject(java.io.ObjectInputStream in) throws IOException,
>         ClassNotFoundException {
> ...
>         klasses = new HashMap();
>         synchronized (monitor ) {
>             for (Iterator iter = perms.entrySet().iterator(); iter.hasNext();) {
>                 Map.Entry entry = (Map.Entry)  iter.next();
>                 Class key = (Class) entry.getKey();
>                 PermissionCollection pc = (PermissionCollection) entry.getValue();
>                 if (key != pc.elements().nextElement().getClass()) {
>                     throw new InvalidObjectException(Messages.getString("security.22"));
//$NON-NLS-1$
>                 }
>                 klasses.put(key, pc);
>             }
>         }
>     ...
>   }
> ...
> }
