  It's something which is seen only on FreeBSD.  As far as I can tell,
it's a race condition in the threading code.  It's difficult to track
down and debug, unfortunately.

  Given the level of complexity of the current code, it's probably best
to re-write it, to be simpler and cleaner.  That way the bugs will be
easier to track down.
