FYI, now I know a much better way to fix this, meaning: 1- No atomic 
operations at allocation time, minimal performance impact; 2- Safe wrt 
old binaries linking to the current version of the exported functions of 
mt_allocator (I'm not changing anything in mt_allocator.h, nothing in 
the exported interfaces of mt_allocator.cc, etc...). I should have 
something well tested in a day or two max :)
