hahaha, guess what - I did *exactly* what you did, but I completely
forgot about it.  I build apache with a custom SRPM, so I tend to forget
about the miscellaneous small patches I add to it.  Sure enough, there's
a mod_rewrite patch I made that comments out that section of code.

There's probably a way to fix this right, probably by changing when the
lock file is created.  For now, I'll probably put this patch up on the
web page, along with any others I have laying around here...
