Hi Jim,

OK, I've integrated your fixes.

Regarding the do_cleanup locking issue, I had two ideas in mind :

1) Hold the lock n° 0 (AKA the "dbm lock") while doing the cleanup to
prevent two concurrent cleanups in the case we are very unlucky (two
cleanups triggered at the same time). More than that, we should try to
hold the lock with an APR try_lock call (which I think is not
implemented yet in _apache.c), so that if the lock is currently held,
we know that a cleanup is already being performed, so we can safely
skip it.

2) while the cleanup is being performed, hold the lock on each session
with a try_lock call, so that if a session is locked, it will never be
candidate for a cleanup.
