Hi there,

I think I've got it solved. I just took the functionality and moved it away 
out of the daemon and put it into a new daemon that doesn't use threading but 
rather uses fork() itself. The original daemon queries the functions now from 
this new one. It seems to work fine at the cost of just a little overhead.
I know this is merely a curing the symptoms but it works for me ;-)
Thank you anyway!
