Subject apr_file_lock on Windows
Date Sun, 04 Nov 2007 13:28:33 GMT

In apr_file_lock documentation, it is written:
"Locks are established on a per-thread/process basis;
a second lock by the same thread will not block."

It works like that on Unix.
But on Windows, a second call to apr_file_lock does block.

apr_file_lock(fd, APR_FLOCK_EXCLUSIVE);
apr_file_lock(fd, APR_FLOCK_EXCLUSIVE); /* blocks on Windows */
