Description David Levin 2011-07-13 10:41:57 PDT
The race condition is highly unlikely and was only noticed through code inspection but it is trivial to make the code correct.

The race would happen if the static initialization starts to happen on two threads. 
Thread 1 does the initialization and Thread 2 is at the initialization code but hasn't yet executed it. 
Thread 1 finishes the pthread_once call and then Thread 2 initializes onceControl to PTHREAD_ONCE_INIT.
Thread 2 does the pthread_once call which happens again now.

All other instances do this correctly now.
