RE: [cdt-dev] deadlocks

I have no problem with the fix for 5.0.1 as you've laid it out. I do
worry about potential corruption due to unsychronized access to the
descriptor data. But that's probably less likely than the deadlock.

Long term, though, i.e. 5.1, we need to get to the bottom of this stuff.
