This logic seems broken.

The problem is that anonymous mutexes against a persistant data store can't be
closed and reopened between server generations.  This use of pre/post config
persists the broken design.

This layer of init really should happen against process pool, within the scope
of the register hooks.  No?

There's no hassle for a named mutex object that corresponds to the persistent
object, e.g. a named file lock against a named database.
