In this particular case, libgudev version 163 has a bug fix so the
library can be used safely in multi-threaded applications. This is the
commit in question
In the future, for gudev, please either track HEAD or rely on the
distro to provide a sufficiently new version (ideally the latter) -
this business of locking onto old versions is just very bad practice
and confusing for everyone and it's pretty annoying to see that bug
fixes made almost a year ago isn't being used. Who knows what other
kinds of bugs this has caused...
