Thank you *very much* for the suggestion! That does solve the issue! :-)

I've opened a bug report with the vendor a couple weeks ago, but so far they
didn't change the hostapd...

Migrating to SQL eventually sounds good; I didn't even know it was possible to
use SQL for concurrency checks.  I don't have that many users atm, though, so
doing a linear search is probably causing less overhead than using a
b-tree =)
