Subject Re: Non-threadsafe functions used in threads? (1.3, 2.0)
Date Wed, 06 Oct 1999 04:34:06 GMT

I know how to fix this, and I am about to fix them all.  With any luck,
APR will be completely thread-safe by morning.  Please don't ask me to
explain tonight.  I have been thinking about this since six o'clock, and I
won't be able to do anything until I get it coded.  There will be
something committed to at least begin solving this problem ASAP.
