The only crash related issue currently is that handling of attributes when
using multiple threads.  If a thread changes an attribute while another
thread is using it.

Other than that, the software is rather stable. Have not noticed any
database corruption, etc.

Is there anything particular I can help you with?

The major issues are:
* Increasing the performance: SOFTHSM-86
* Improving the attribute handling: SOFTHSM-66

Perhaps you can also help with some integration testing against some other
applications. We are mainly focusing on OpenDNSSEC when testing the
integration over PKCS#11.
