It could, in the case where the stack becomes
full.  But I think I may be able to fix this
without having to change the stack to a queue.
I'll check the code and respond with more details
in a couple of minutes.

(The motivation for using a stack is that it
requires fewer operations in the mutex-protected
code path than a queue implementation would.
Shortening this code path reduces the probability
of mutex contention.)
