I run three very active machines which all use dio to lock files on an NFS export.

Several times a day, one of the php instances randomly locks up and spins with 
100% CPU, and this will complete.

I've traced the issue down to dio_open - which, for some reason, sometimes causes 
the CPU to spin away and it never returns.

Test script:
Here's the code block that the issue occurs in. PLEASE NOTE:  This code works 99.9999% of the time - the issue, unfortunately, cannot be reliably reproduced.

$flags = O_RDONLY;
$locktype = F_RDLCK;
$locked = false;

while($locked === false)
	$this->handle = @dio_open($filename, $flags, 0777);	
	if ($this->handle===false) break;
	$res = @dio_fcntl($this->handle, F_SETLK, Array("type"=>$locktype));
	if ($res!=-1)
		$locked = true;

"and this will complete." should be "and won't stop until killed."

Does this still exists with latest 0.0.8 ?
