[swift-users] Simultaneous access to global tuple members

In that example the tuple is a (stored) property of a class, not a global variable. And why does it crash for a global variable, but not for a local variable in a function?
(Sorry if I am overlooking something obvious.)

The first example in that section (https://github.com/apple/swift-evolution/blob/master/proposals/0176-enforce-exclusive-access-to-memory.md#value-types) is similar to your example; it trips the dynamic enforcement mechanism for the same reason. The second example shows a possible workaround.
