Interesting, do you have more information about which timer might fire and
which component then tries to acquire a writeLock? I mean this kind of
thing might be scattered all over the codebase by now and we should better
try to find the places... In particular I've recently fixed something
similar in vcscommon plugin, which indirectly caused another event-loop to
run which apparently caused the timer to fire....
You get along very well with everyone except animals and people.
