The decoder:run() stuff holds the mutex while it's decoding, which it
shouldn't really need to do (could just just hold when it's updating
the ouput buffer).
It could use a redesign, as it is actually inherited code from a
completely different project. The problem is that it is a bit hairy to
get into and redo, and it seems to work just about everywhere (with the
apparent exception of some Redhat/Fedora distros).
