Re: [xml] thread safe?

Oh my. Here I've been operating under the belief that libxml is thread-safe
(I wonder where I got that idea).  Can someone point to ways in which it is
not safe, for my enlightenment? Is the nature of the unsafe-ness such that
I can handle it by using a mutex to prevent more than one thread at a time
from entering any of my code (two sections of code) that use libxml or is
it of a more serious nature?

I've gone so far as to be nearly ready to deliver product that uses it in a
multithreaded way, so this revelation has my heart up in my throat.

Details will be appreciated.

Neither is thread-safe.
