Can you t/a these two threads please? It is possible that something is
spinning in the softbio thread. The most recent occurrance of this was due
to code sleeping while holding a simple_lock.

[I'm thinking we should just rip out all the remaining calls to simple_lock
because they are error prone. Those in file system and MD code are likely
to need replacing, others don't.]
