Symptoms

Following observations were made with respect to an issue with a user-created MTA application :

* Sometimes (not always) the application dumps a core, and fails.
* This happens with the same input data.
* Sometimes the application finishes without any errors.
* This issue did not happen with only one thread.
* Examined the core file with the debugger dbx, it always displays the line with the sorting opcode PIN_FLIST_SORT .

Is the PIN_FLIST_SORT  function, a multi-thread safe function?
