I think this only happens if the same connection calls GET_LOCK() again,
i.e. you can only have one lock at a time per connection, though that
may still be too limiting for your use.  If a different connection asks
for your lock, the lock will not be given out.

We should probably take any further MySQL discussion off-list, since
it's not really on-topic anymore.  The other changes sound good.
