BTW, does anybody know why we are not using the system strtod() when

definitive answer on whether or not the standard strtod() is guaranteed
to be thread-safe or not. Does anybody know (where to find this

There's no reason strtod() should be thread-unsafe. It doesn't return
a static buffer or remember any state across calls.

In any case, I'm not familiar enough with the code to understand whether
using the system strtod(3) would avoid this assertion failure, which
appears to come from "Balloc" in mprec.c.
