Can anybody here think of why these calls to fcntl() are not blocking my

Subject: [dav-dev] help with fcntl...

Hi all,

I suspected that a recent change was going to deadlock me, but figured I'd
run it anyhow as it seemed suspicious that I hadn't already deadlocked in
other cases... Well, it didn't deadlock on the fcntl() calls.

Rooting out the problem, it almost seems like my fcntl() calls aren't
setting a lock at all(!).

I'm running Linux kernel 2.2.12 and glibc 2.1.2. Running strace seems like
the kernel is getting the right stuff and not blocking my process (so it
would seem there isn't a problem with glibc).

I've attached my program. If I haven't done something really stupid, then
it should block on that do_lock(fd2) call.

This is the locking code that I added to SDBM a long while ago, and it
worked when I first snarfed it from mod_rewrite. Of course, that was a
kernel or two ago...

Does anybody have any ideas?
