Thanks to everyone jumping in.

I need no convincing that mixing forks and threads isn't just a problem but a problem factory. Given that the rest of this code seems to try to avoid similar deadlocks with similar mutexes, I figured we'd want to include this mutex to make a best-effort at being safe here. That made it worth reporting. To be sure, I still believe that the application code that led us here needs deeper fixes to address the fork/thread problems.
