Yes, there is a race condition when loading the config. It's very hard
to trigger (since the tls domain configs are kept around for some time in an
attempt to avoid this race) and probably if you don't continuously reload
the config while having very heavy tls traffic and some swapping you'll
never be able to trigger it.

Anyway it should be fixed (transformed into something race-free,
similar with the runtime changes in the cfg framework).
