Version: 1.5-feature
CUPS.org User: mike

This bug tracks the remainder of the fix for CUPS STR #3461, which concerns proper support for threading in OpenSSL and GNU TLS. Since GNU TLS lacks proper threading support (namely they require the app to do all of the threading support, which makes it impossible to actually support threading for a CUPS-based app...)

This issue apparently also affects OpenSSL.

Applications that dynamically load libcups (such as all of the Mozilla.org apps) will crash when unloading libcups.

Good news from the GNU TLS folks:

Follow-up Comment #1, sr #107409 (project gnutls):

We are planning on a major change in the backend crypto library in 2.11.x
version of gnutls, which will have threading support included. The current
code is available for testing under daily builds
(http://daily.josefsson.org/gnutls/) and git. You can help us by testing
whether the changes in the new branch fix your issue.
