Hm.  Does that happen to work with 1.6?  I ask because I think you'll
get a locking failure now, even if you aren't using -retainsequence.
It looks like all folders are opened with locking set ... and I think
that would cause sequence file lock contention.  Would be nice to
get that resolved before 1.6 goes out the door.
