The locking code added to the create/destroy side of the threads
has yielded good results. On my stripped down server, which was crashing
after between 40,000 and 1.4M transactions managed 14.75M last night.
I will kill this and attempt to run my real task for a day or so,
but it seems to confirm a small race exists ....
