 No, this lock is only to protect the buffered control commands.

 I don't think it is the good way anyway, input_DetachSout should be called 
ONLY when p_input->b_dead is true otherwise it may still be used (by es_out
and decoders).
 Calling input_DetachSout after input_StopThread without a waiting loop
is wrong.
