Yes, it showed a transaction waiting for a write lock on an object that was 
held by a non-transactional reader. Normally that sort of thing should never 
deadlock. I would have to dig with gdb to identify which threads owned the 
locks in question. I guess I may have to build your source to try to duplicate 
the problem, unless you're up for walking thru a debug session thru IM/etc.
