OK, these are both fixed and checked in to my SVN:

The timed lock issue was silliness on my part. My original
implementation using the old threading interface did not have this bug,
but I rushed trying to convert it from the old interface to the new, and
since I don't use timed_lock that much, did not test it. My bad.
