Sorry, I haven't had time to find out what's wrong with the lockd
daemon; I have only been able to verify that if you run the
fork_xxxx.pl tests on Linux with locking enabled, mysqld will lock up.
It may be something thats easy to fix...

Using 'isamchk -f' is much faster than using -r, as -f does a quick
check and only repairs the tables if needed.
The new ISAM in MySQL 3.23 automaticly notices if a table wasn't
closed properly (this will enable us to add automatic isamchk's into
MySQL). The new isamchk also has a fast option; In this case it will
not examine any tables that hasn't changed since last check.
