Sure, I'll test it, but I don't exactly see what you are trying to
achieve with the locking. Apparently, you are trying to prevent
simultaneous db access, but with the way you implemented it, only access
between a customEvent and the transcode thread are protected.  Wouldn't
it be better to pass in a global mutex, and protect all of mythbackends
threads from each other?  Or is that the master plan, and this is just
one step on the way?
