  First of all: thank you for that backtrace :D So here's the reason that's 
happening, and it is... silly more than anything else. I've never been able to 
provoke an actual crash out of this (somehow? not sure how that's not 
happened, though i'm sure it would start immediately now someone else has 
managed, thanks for collapsing that wave function ;) ).
  In short: The archive is held by a model, which then passes archive entries 
off to the runnable you see in the backtrace up there. It then attempts to 
load the data out of that, which will fail if more than one attempts to do so 
at the same time, because of course it will.
  In even shorter: Threads are "fun", and i'm working on the fix for that one 
right now ;)
