The ping_pong test uses fcntl() locks. These go through dlm_controld and
are independent of the filesystem, whether you are using GFS/GFS2 (or
maybe even OCFS2 now as well). So these are not the same as the glocks
that the last message was referring to.

What options have you got in your cluster.conf relating to plocks? What
kernel are you using?
