It is paranoia (and maybe also jet-lag as the plane only landed
at 8am this morning for an overnight flight - 8 hours:-), but I'm willing
to be proved wrong on this. The locking tdb actually gets 
more contention that the open tdb (as we check it on every
read/write) so that wouldn't be the right tdb. The two
possibilities are the open tdb and the connection tdb.

Is it worth trying both with a large netbench/Samba4 torture run and
seeing if we can detect a problem ?
