  Read !
xmlInitParser() must be called *only once* *in the main thread* !
So please forget about calling it repeatedly on a timer loop on
different threads, it's completely wrong... and has nothing to do
with xmlsec, just the fact you didn't read the documentation, so
stop sending tons of mails about this on the list.
