Oh, thanks Carlo for working on a fix. I missed your previous comment
mentioning it and asking for feedback, sorry. I'll see what I can do to test it
(I need to patch and recompile Qt first, as I use PCRE through
QRegularExpression).

I'm a bit confused by that part. The crash I had was with the global_mutex
specifically (so it's definitely used even if it serves no purpose). I wasn't
even aware of the allocation lock.

So I suspect my testing will show I still have a crash, until the global_mutex
is either fixed or retired.
