1. You should report the bug to the utidylib authors, so they can fix it
or pass it on to tidy authors.

2. A thread wouldn't help... but a process certainly would.
https://launchpad.net/ampoule may be helpful if you don't want to
implement your own process wrapper, or you could just run a sub-process
that takes input and output filenames on the command-line and pass data
around that way.
