Ok, got it. 
Thank you very much for pointing this out.

You can actually pre-allocate a sparse matrix (using

Even then (i.e., if you can guarantee that sufficiently many elements
are reserved per inner vector), insertion is still not completely
thread-safe, because elements can get moved, and the `m_data.m_size`
member variable will be modified by different threads -- you may get
lucky here, but you should really not rely on that.
