Updated patch

Derived from our internal review process, here is a much
cleaner and (should be) just as effective solution to this deadlock.
If possible, could you please test this patch to sure it truly does
solve the deadlock and does not introduce any regressions.

Apparently, IT 72547 is related to a different problem.  Thus, I'm
un-dup'ing bug 168878 from this one and moving the IT link from here
to there.  I'll repost the previous comment over there as well.
