 Chris rightly pointed out:
   MySQL should automatically release this table lock when the
 backend's MySQL connections terminate.  If there's another case
 of a failure occurring while the program stays running and the
 hence the MySQL connection stays open so the lock is not
 released, then it sounds like some code path isn't calling
 unlockSchema() where it should.

 which is absolutely correct. I was testing the locking with a mysql
 session that wasn't closed. As soon as it closed, the lock did too, which
 means this ticket is about to do the same :-)
