very bad, indeed. i think i'll solve that (on my side) by adding a
configure option to psycopg to be used to allow threading when the user
is *sure* postgres has been compiled with a reentrant version of crypt.

yes. what about using crypt from DES (reentrant) if postgres is being
linked with it? is the MD5 stuff reentrant?

thank you for your promptly response,
