This test seems to work fine for me... I have it putting in the lines of
data and then dequeueing the same lines in the same order.  The lock
statements are necessary when you use the queue between threads; you
want to lock (queue) { operations_on_queue_here; }, since the queue
itself doesn't do any locking.  What output are you seeing that's
broken?  I'd also suggest not using ls for a test case, because of the
possibility of ls sending bizzarely formatted output that could be
confusing the reader (the chances of this are almost zero, but still..)
