Multi-threading improved

As of revision 42305, ALLPATHS-LG now sets the environment variable MALLOC_PER_THREAD to 1, which causes each thread to do its own memory allocation. This results in a several percent speed-up, and in some cases, a much greater improvement. We anticipate that the change could result in problems on some systems, so if you encounter strange behavior, please let us know.
