That only made the bug more visible - the real bug is somewhere
else. Which makes it even scarrier, the bug was in in the fast path
locking patch from the start...
It assumes conflicting fast path locks can only ever be in the same
database as the the backend transfering the locks to itself. But thats
obviously not true for the startup process which is in no specific
I think it might also be a dangerous assumption for shared objects?
A patch minimally addressing the is attached, but it only addresses part
