I've verified that a problem exists in mupdate due to some code changes 
that I made in prot_select().  I haven't fixed it yet, but I'm working 
on it (debugging threaded code sucks).

 Thank you. I just wanted to say that I was seeing this as well, for weeks, and have been trying to narrow it down (before writing to list to ask), making mostly system changes. I was wondering, later on, if there would be a patch for 2.2.12, we cannot upgrade yet to 2.3 because we need to upgrade backend first.
 Take care guys,
