Yes.  Thread A allocates the memory, stores the address in the
thread-specific data, sets the refcount to one and sets up the pool
cleanup handler.  Thread A finishes with the request.  Thread B runs the
pool cleanup handler, sets the refcount to zero, frees the memory and
sets the *wrong* thread-specific data to NULL.  Thread A then gets the
free'd address from the thread-specific data and continues to use
it--all sorts of horrible things follow.

I've raised issue 4157 to track this problem.
