Can you give more details about what race has happened when we use "flag" for synchronization in this example?

Thank you and wish your explanation.
"The overall feeling though, is that the use of flush is extremely hard to get correct and that we need to do a better job at providing the users with something to allow synchronization to be done more easily."
The method in the examples were often used for synchronization in the past, and so some persons, maybe experts in OMP, is surprised when the examples are deemed wrong.
