Hi Patrick,

Last week I had a bug in the cluster snapshot failover code that exposed 
a bug in dlm or libdlm I think.  My code inadvertently acquired a lock 
twice, first in PW mode, then later in CR mode (because I wasn't 
checking to see if it already had the PW lock).  This caused 
dlm_unlock_wait to wait forever.  Are these locks supposed to be 
recursive or not?  In any event, waiting forever has got to be a bug. 

It might have something to do with a lkid tangle, since I never provided 
separate lkids for the unlock.

This should be easily reproducible.

Regards,

Daniel
