Hi ekacnet,

the description for this issue is far from satisfying. If it is really 
not possible to fix this immediately then the FIXME message should be 
enhanced somehow. That means: is the locking only reproducible in this 
call (try a temporary change to "ldb_rename"), from which code this call 
has been launched and using which arguments...
I mean if someone sooner or later would like to fix it should know where 
to start digging down :)
