ok. i read the archives. i am wondering what you mean for "once
initialized properly". i call the init stuff before going multithread
and my threads parse different documents (at the same time). is that
safe or i need to use a global lock to arbitrate access to the parser?
from the archives i would bet on the lock, but your mail seems going the
other way... 

  Parsing different documents in different threads should work.
There might be a bug but I don't know any which should break 
processing things this way (except maybe a couple of points but
they are not used when parsing HTML).
  Try to run tests without your HTTP implementation and report
a valid stack trace for further examination.
