No, it will be blocked waiing for the write to be completed.

Because there is a pb in JDBM which sometime corrupt the daabase when
conncurrent updates are done. We don't kow why, we have tried to
workaround the issue, without success.

Don't get me wrong : there is no reason a write should ever blcok a
read, and the database corruption should never occur. The thing is that
we are going to get this fixed with Mavibot, once the cross-btree
transaction will be implemented (and a side benefit is that mavibot will
be faster than jdbm)

Most certainly a server issue.
