I suspect this is the same issue as in:

From I quick code inspection, it looks like _prop_dictionary_externalize locks
pd->pd_rwlock and calls prop_dictionary_iterator before unlocking.  
prop_dictionary_iterator's attempt to acquire the lock then fails.  Perhaps 
prop_dictionary_iterator needs to do the _PROP_RWLOCK_TRYRDLOCK dance?
