Not that I'm aware of, and yes, that's the line that's causing the problem.

Nelson, could you try repeating your test with 1.4.0 and capture the
strace output again? What _should_ happen is you get a failure slightly
later on in the commit, when trying to lock the write-lock file that
serialises writers to the filesystem, but it's always possible that
there's a subtle differences between the two locking calls that I'm not
aware of.
