What exactly were you doing when you think you found this deadlock?

We need a procedure to reproduce the problem - or at least give us a general 
idea of what was happening when the problem occurred and why you went 
looking for a locking problem.

Since some very very large sites use CVSNT, I'm a little sceptical that it 
really is a deadlock - unless it's a very rare scenario or some very odd 
procedure/use of the software.

I look forward to your explanation.
