Looked at 0.9.x code and it seems that apr_file_gets() doesn't use any
locks, but relies on apr_file_read() completely (i.e. it doesn't even
have a separate buffered code path). So, I'm guessing this deadlock
isn't affecting this version.

I can still commit Joe's apr_file_gets() buffered test, if you like (I
ported that and it seems to pass). Yes?

OK. I'm sure Joe will have better ideas (as usual :-), but I'm sure it
won't hurt if I have a look as well.
