Ditto but about 2x those numbers.

I also see this error once in a while. I read the code a while back
and it's basically because there's two levels of locks that
receive-pack tries to get, and it's possible for two pushers to get
the first lock due to a race condition.

I've never seen data loss due to this though, because the inner lock is atomic.
