The session lockup issue also needs to be addressed. This has been raised in the past but I found the recipe. This bug occurs when requests come too close together. My spidy sense says that this is a file locking race condition.

What is the workaround that you ended up using?  I looked at the code once but it quickly went over my head.  I couldn’t see where the fonts were pulled in, at least not where it could be cleanly intercepted.
