Ok, thanks. That clarification helps a lot. The MS implementation
appears to be thread safe (or at least has a much smaller race window)
than the Mono implementation. We were previously treating the .Enabled
property as being thread safe, which is probably a huge source of grief.
Will get to fixing that in our source. Thanks much.

There is no silver bullet. Plus, werewolves make better neighbors
than zombies, and they tend to keep the vampire population down.
