I can't help you with this issue, but unless you use frame, where the 
same session key might be used in parallel, it#s normaly safe to use the 
Null locker.

Otherwise you might try to use mysql for data storeage and locking, as 
far as I know, this works without problems.


P.S. Do you use %mdat or only %udat for sessions?
