So, i stumbled across an odd little bug and was looking for someone else 
to confirm my suspicions.  The problem has to do with class gc and static 
methods.  Basically, i'm thinking that a class could be garbage collected
while a thread is still executing a static method in that class.  This 
could happen because, as far as i know, there is no reference to the class 
on the stack while the thread is executing a static method.  Perhaps I'm 
missing something...
