Hi Christopher,

I didn't verify but understood explanations that all locking-functions 
simply are php-based (instead of database-based).
The problem isn't the locking itselfe but that with "simple" 
locking-configuration the lock isn't released and php waits without end 
for that release.
Oliver Hader proposed to limit the locking related to PHP max-execution 
but I suppose there weren't made any changes inside TYPO3 since I 
reported that bug. Furthermore Olivers proposition perhaps doesn't fit 
to all situations because some pages with large content need longer to 
be cached and have to be reloaded to write the whole cache.

$TYPO3_CONF_VARS['SYS']['lockingMode'] = 'semaphore' or 'disable'

If that fixes your problems I'd appreciate your feedback here.

Best Regards
