Thanks! I did that, and it seems that solved my locking issue. Now my
site is nice and snappy everywhere.

The question now is - what are the implications of turning off the lock?

On a related note - I'd like to create my own Session subclass,
DBSession, which would record session info into a postgres database. I'd
like to do this so that I could set up a server farm, and share the
session data across multiple machines.

Is this realistic, or are there other issues that I would stumble over?
