This won't be fixed in 1.3.1 and I'm hesitant to fix it in 1.3.x at all.  This 
deadlock is the result of a fix for another deadlock.  The reason for this 
mess is somewhat complicated.  First, automatically adding scalars to the 
global list is an issue when we need to lock an object that we are providing 
while we are locked.  It can deadlock with the update thread.  The "fix" for 
this caused the regression referenced in this bug.  The function it happened 
in doesn't even belong in KstPlugin.  KstScalar's constructor is a mess 
already, especially with the locking argument, and adding another is not a 
good answer.  I think we need to fix scalars properly.  This is a Kst 1.4 
item only.
