I am looking at the function dns_lookup() in the file
The function is using two static variables, ns and id.
Especially the use of the variable id is wrong (I haven't check ns yet).
I think the static id should be copied to a stack variable making it
threadsafe. At line 805 in the file the static variable id is compared
to the id (h.id) of an incoming packet, the problem is that id could
have been updated of another thread during the time to receive the
Any comments?

Best regards,
