I agree this would be the most likely reason. I searched the entire 
stack for "lock" messages. There is only one other set of locks and it 
happens at a different time in a different handler (i.e., it isn't 
nested.) But the behavior I see does look like there is a lock 
happening. I'll look again, it sounds like it's not a universal problem 
so it must be something in my stack. Thanks for confirming.
