Whaouh... A lot of things. When we do a search, we get back a cursor 
that will get data from the partition, and it can take a lot of time. 
But when the cursor has been provided, we are already out of the 
OperationManager. Locking the partition will just freeze the search, and 
I'm not sure it can restart finely. Frankly, for searches, I don't see a 
fine way to resume if the partition has been swapped out and replaced, 
except stopping the operation, and informing the user with the 
appropriate message...

For the other operations (modifications), I do think the best is to 
stack the incoming operations when you have acquired the lock so that 
you can restart them when you are done with the partition, but you at 
least should wait for the ongoing modifications to be completed.

You can get a list of the Threads actually waiting on the lock : 

" Returns a collection containing threads that may be waiting to acquire 
either the read or write lock."

We certainly have to abort the operation correctly, by sending a 
LdapMessage with a specific code to inform the users that something went
