Believe me, I've been trying.

I fixed many compile errors, and had help with a couple of others.

I've just checked in the changes that I've been working on. I can't
guarantee that they fix the deadlocks until they're tested on the

an eye on the regression testing reports, but please let me know one way
or the other as soon as you find out anything.
