I think this could be a reentrancy problem. Sending output to log
destinations is not reentrant, but is not protected by a mutex. (other input
methods do not use threads, so reentrancy was not an targeted aim) I'll
protect non-reentrant parts with a mutex, that should do the trick.

I am going to hack in fifo support, and add this mutex and release 1.1.23.
