Only is truss shows significant time in fcntl locks. Which
I doubt. tdb's are multi-reader/multi-writer (which is why
they're so fast).

We need more data to track this. It's more likely to be
a lpq cache time bug causing more lpq processes to be
spawned (a bug like that was fixed a few months ago in the
2.2 tree - but was being tested on Linux, not Solaris).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
