Hi Jake,

The documentation for Condition.wait says:

wait c m atomically unlocks the mutex m and suspends the calling process on
the condition variable c. The process will restart after the condition
variable c has been signalled. The mutex m is locked again before wait

I figured that I needed to lock and unlock the mutex in the child threads
because otherwise it is possible for the condition variable to be signaled
before the main thread waits, which I thought means that the signal is

Thanks Daniel, I'll take a look at it.
