The dnsrv code in jabberd uses some functions calls that are not thread
save. E.g. gethostbyname instead of gethostbyname_r. This wouldn't work
for some clients I think.

In general there seem to be some multithreading problems in the jabber
server components. E.g. the yahoo-transport hasn't stopped working
because yahoo! changed protocols but because it's not aware of being
multithreaded and jabberd-1.4.2 seems to organize the threads a little
bit different. I changed that and yahoo-transport is working well again.
