View as plain text  
There is almost no reason to use LOCK TABLES on InnoDB tables.

I prefer to have auto_commit=1, then use explicit BEGIN and COMMIT for 
clumps of statements that need ACID.  I never use auto_commit=0.

Following those two rules, your issue with innodb_table_locks being on 
goes away.
