Hi,

We often experience with the problem that reindex 
cannot be finished in our production database. 
It's typically done with 30 minutes. However,
sometimes, when there is another "COPY" process,
reindex will not finish. By monitoring the CPU 
time reindex takes, it does not increase at all.
That seems a deadlock. But the following query shows
only reindex process (23127)is granted lock while 
COPY process (3149) is not.

Last time when we have this problem and kill 
reindex process and COPY process does not work.
We had to bounce the database server.

As you know, when reindex is running, nobody can
access the table.
Can someone kindly help?

Thanks,



Here is lock info from database:

        replace        | database | transaction |  pid
 |        mode         | granted
