No, that wasn't what it was waiting for, and lying to the user like that
isn't going to make things better.

Christian's idea of a context line seems plausible to me.  I don't
care for this implementation too much --- a global variable?  Ick.
Make a wrapper function for XactLockTableWait instead, please.
And I'm not real sure that showing the whole tuple contents is a good
thing; I can see people calling that a security leak, not to mention
that the performance consequences could be dire.
