Hi Brian,

I will attempt to answer some of your questions. Dr. Rupp will probably correct any error I make in my answers.

I'm confused about when to worry about this.  Does it matter for
synchronized methods?

Yes, as the system/library call you are doing might also be done by *another* method on *another* thread.

 Does it matter for all native code?

Of course.

 Does ANSI
define what is reentrant?

Posix does, which is what most of Classpath's native code relies on.
