I wouldn't be upset if you decided that was grounds for removing the 
code that tries to support mandatory locking for POSIX locks.  As far as 
I'm concerned, this is very much an experimental feature, and 
experiments often fail.  The failure already told us what to try next 
(BSD locks) and according to the one report received so far, it looks 
like it might fix it.
