It probably shouldn't be used, but working around it is a pain, at
least right now.  I fixed it in a different way a couple days ago.
I made `compile' work in this case.

I also fixed this in a different way.  At the same time I made the
locking really work -- we weren't actually locking when we needed to!

There's still one known failure case.  I sent a PR for it.

Is this really the right thing to do?
Will it work in all the situations we care about?
(I really dislike sh.)
