[TYPO3-english] Requests lock TYPO3?

Hello all!

I am developing a backend extension that sends a bunch of emails and it takes approximately 8 min. to complete.

Now, if a logged backend users initiates the process, he cannot request any other page on the TYPO3 site. I assume there is some kind of user locking (probably to session), because if I open TYPO3 in another browser, I can work normally.

I need to allow the same user multiple requests, because I would like to load a "LOG" file via ajax, which would show the emails that have been already sent each second or two.

I checked the install tool and there is only this => [SYS][lockingMode] = disable   .. Which is not what I want. 

Can anyone help me understand why TYPO3 locks 1 request / user, and how could I avoid that in my own extension?

PS: I know i could use the sheduler for something like this, however since I am already here, can you help me?
