My apologies. As I recall your problem looked to be a race in an area
where I was redoing the concurrency control. I intended to ask you to
retest when my new version came out. Unfortunately the new version took
awhile, and by the time I sent it out I forgot to ask you about it.

I believe your problem should be fixed in recent versions. If not, I'll
make another pass at it.
