I've added serialization code to the plugin which protects access to the
library using a mutex. It'd be great if you could test the patch.
Currently, the fix is only in the "collectd-4.9" branch. If you need it
merged to 4.10 or master, please let me know.

Also, could you please open a bug report for Debian? If you do so,
Sebastian might be able to get this fix into Debian Lenny. (Provided
the problem is fixed, of course ;)
