> I am using ActiveMQ 5.1.0 with the AMQMessageStore (in the default configuration except
data directory location) and sending/receiving transactionally using the VMTransport. This
produced the deadlock shown in the attached (partial) thread dump, generated by jstack -l.

> In a nutshell, the VMTransport thread is holding the AMQMessageStore.lock=KahaReferenceStore.lock,
acquired at, while awaiting a countDown on AMQMessageStore.flushLatch.
The ActiveMQ Task (which is the AMQMessageStore.asyncWriteTask) should do the countDown on
the flushLatch but is waiting on acquiring the KahaReferenceStore.lock first. Hence deadlock.
> Note that the condition messageAcks.size() > this.peristenceAdapter.getMaxCheckpointMessageAddSize()
must be true for the deadlock to occur -- this triggers the flush. 
> Since the transport is one of the deadlocked threads, all access via the transport stops,
making the broker unusable and making this issue a blocker for me. A comment (workaround?)
as soon as possible would be much appreciated.
