Does this mean it can cause damage at the system level, or just in the individual user's space using the module? Thanks Dennis

I can't see how problems would escape the userspace. But I think that currently it can mess up the userspace if you attempt to do things like open a file with :gzip, create a new thread, and attempt to read from that file handle in the new thread. The important part is that I've not audited for thread safety, so I can't be sure what it would to in a threaded environment. Nicholas Clark
