From the upstream CHANGELOG at the entries of version 3.6rc2:

[20050920.1800] jonz: added persistent mode support for css_drv

NOTE: css_drv has since been renamed to hash_drv

added daemon mode support for css_drv when using CSSConcurrentUser 
mmap's user's database into memory). no need for daemon mode when NOT using 
feature so don't bother, but is very fast if you are using a single global
css file.

The documentation saying only mysql and pgsql drivers supports multi-threading 
were just copying an outdated piece of code checking that the driver compiled 
works with the daemon mode. But support for daemon mode in libhash_drv exists 
since 3.6.0.

There has been several other fixes on the hash driver so I believe that this 
bug no longer exists. I'll try to investigate further to see what the reported 
bug was and see if it has been fixed.

Best regards,

Thomas Preud'homme
