I think that this works:
  locking_state_machine& operator= (locking_state_machine const& that)
    if(boost::addressof(that) != this) {
      const bool lock_this_first = boost::addressof(m_Mutex) <
      scoped_lock that_lock(lock_this_first? m_Mutex : that.m_Mutex);
      scoped_lock this_lock(lock_this_first? that.m_Mutex : m_Mutex);
      base_type::operator= (static_cast< base_type const& >(that));
    return *this;

In Christ,
