Alas, no.  The deadlock only happens when 
Database::upgradeSystemTables() has actual work to do.  It shows up 
trying to upgrade a Netfrastructure V2 database to V3 (aka Falcon).  It 
would also show up the next time you decide to extend the Falcon system 
tables.  Until then, it will have to sit around untestable (except by me 
and Hoagland).
