 From "The Elements of Java Style", by Allan Vermeulen et al., page 84:

        #99. Use the double-check pattern for synchronized initialization.

They give the standard, broken double-check idiom.

This double-check idiom is like a roach infestation. It doesn't
matter how many of them you crush under your shoe, more of them crawl
out from under the refrigerator.
