We designed with this in mind... basically what's supposed to happen is
that rather than having a bucket allocator per thread you have a group of
available bucket allocators, and you assign one to each new connection.
Since each connection will be processed by at most one thread at a time,
you're safe.  When the connection is closed, the allocator is placed back
into the list of available allocators for reuse on future connections.
