      Description

      Globus GSS code is not completely thread safe. At least the `gss_init_sec_context` is racy and can fail. This has been reported as issue 48:

      https://github.com/globus/globus-toolkit/issues/48

      There is a simple work-around, protect calls to gss_init_sec_context with a mutex. I have a patch that adds this work-around; the above link shows part of that code.
