The proper solution here would probably be for bacula to use the newer
CRYPTO_THREADID features of OpenSSL, which do not have this restriction.
The API is described at http://www.openssl.org/docs/crypto/threads.html
Unfortunately these are only available with a recent OpenSSL source -
and not with the version that is included in the FreeBSD 7 base system.
