This is first time we have such report (lock count higher than
lt_high_locks) since normally we have users set "lt_high_locks" to
higher values than default 1024*1024. Will look into this issue more.
Intuitively I suspect there is a time lag between sending and receiving
of "lock full" messages between daemons

Is it possible for you to log a support call or open a bugzilla (so we
can have some records internally) ? Will work with our maintainer
tomorrow to put the test RPMs somewhere that you can retrieve.
