> There appears to be a race condition in the configuration admin that allows managed services
to get updated with empty properties (but not null). Furthermore, due to the same bug NullPointerExceptions
appear under heavy load. 
> Fortunately, I think I was able to isolate the bug. The issue is that configurations
are persisted when created but before they are initialized (i.e., given a configuration).
If during this window a new ManagedService appears it gets updated with an empty Dictionary.
Likewise, if the configuration is re-read after such an update attempt it does not have a
pid which causes the null pointer exceptions.
> The fix seems to be rather simple  (unless I'm missing something :-) but took me some
time to figure out.
