Hi Lorin,

are you saying that with your ConcurrentUpdates spec and the given
model, the Toolbox never shows an error trace? Or does it fail to show
the trace intermittently hinting at a concurrency bug?

I tried you example ConcurrentUpdates locally with version 1.5.3 of the
Toolbox on Mac, Win and Linux and it showed an error trace every time.

Please provide more information about your environment (OS, Java
version, Toolbox version, ...).
