Might be dsm style memory. I think the right approach here, regardless of the source of the memory, is to actually bit create a new latch, but instead to store a pointer the the owning processes preexisting latch. Besides solving this issue, it also avoids problems with various routines already waiting on the proclatch. Andres -- Sent from my Android device with K-9 Mail.
