If ldap_pvt_thread_mutex_lock doesn't yield when it has to wait, that
sounds like a bug in the threads implementation to me. So I suggest to
- test it on some other operating system,
- bugreport it when it hopefully turns out to be OS-dependent, and
- insert that code in ldap_pvt_thread_mutex_lock itself, if possible
#ifdeffed on a configure test which detects the problem.
Under capitalism man exploits man, under communism it's just the opposite.
