I have a threaded application that streams data across a network, similar to
what GridFTP does. Upon subsequent transfers of a 10GB, I occasionally get a
hang mid-streams in globus_l_xio_register_writev(): the thread waits
indefintely on a mutex_lock() operation.

I also have a problem with register_close() sometimes hanging when using the
GSI driver. Here, the close is registered but the close callback is never
fired: I get stuck in a select() that never exists.

Both of these happen infrequently and may be hard to replicate. I am in the
process of cleaning the code up that trigger these problems, so that it can be
