Mentioned this in a reply to your new ticket, but just in case...

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.
