We see this occationally in ZODB 3.2 in the following situation:

  From time to time our ZEO (running on Solaris) fails
  to create a "TemporaryFile" (because Solaris raises
  an "OSError: error 11 -- resource temporarily unavailabe" from "fdopen").

  Apparently, ZEO does not expect this kind of exception and
  forgets to remove the lock set for this client.
  As a consequence, any further commit trial by this client
  results in the "Multiple simulataneous tpc_begin..." exception.
