>Lock #1 is CRYPTO_LOCK_ERR, which I believe is used for logging errors.  It appears your application is generating a lot of errors for some reason.  Never tried it myself, but you probably can't disable this lock with multiple threads running.  You should take a look at the error log to identify the cause of the errors.  Then resolve the issue, whatever it may be.  

I have a rewrite of the error-stack stuff that halves the number of locks.  If you want to try it, drop me a line.
