OK found that out myself. Apparently some strtod implementations are
indeed not thread-safe by default (but most seem to be). The other
problem is that strtod depends on the locale and changing the locale
isn't thread-safe... sigh. So we do need our own implementation, or do
something like glib g_ascii_strtod() and convert the string
representation first to the current locale form (eeeewwww).
