Yes, both "cli_lock" and "queue" tables are InnoDB. The server is
running MySQL 5.1.36.
I find it strange that I would have so many of these deadlocks
throughout a day when these queries run from 3 processes every 20
seconds. What's the chance that 2 scripts should be executing these
queries simultaneously, and even if the probability exists, why is it
causing this deadlock error each time?
If I break the query into 2 parts ... like SELECT FOR UPDATE followed by
the INSERT/UPDATE, would that help fix the errors?
What is this error exactly, anyhow? Where is the deadlock ... is it on
the select or the insert?
