Going back to this, can someone let me know of some code or a situation 
that causes the reported problem to happen.

Is the driver in question thread safe?

Does anyone know of any thread unsafe drivers out there? As I would love 
to pull all the code that tries to protect unsafe drivers is its never 
being used.
