Thanks for the suggestion.  I've done a code review of the
Glyph/GlyphTexture/Font code and have added a mutex lock to the
Font::assignGlyphToGlyphTexture().  There are already mutex locks
elsewhere, but there may be a need to add more.  The change is checked into
the 3.6 branch and master:


I have tested by running all the OSG examples and running osgtext --mt, and
don't see any regressions.  I can't confirm that the change has fixed the
crashes that you both have seen as I haven't got any example that
reproduces it.  Could you test the 3.6 branch and let me know how you get

This fix isn't in 3.6.5-rc3. but will be part of the final 3.6.5 stable
