No it doesn't :-) The real solution would be to fix the source of the
problem. That source is the use of the PHP flock function to do the
synchronization which has unsolvable issues
<http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.flock.php> -- That leaves one
other solution which is to patch phpATM to use some for of reliable
database. Which means forking even more the phpATM code, which is OK as
it's GPL. But it's more maintenance for us. Or ultimately finding
something other than phpATM that works better.
