BTW, what did you end up setting mod_python.mutex_locks to? If you use
4 like I said, then it can't have been in correct part of Apache
configuration, outside of all VirtualHost, as error log still shows '8
session mutexes'.

if you can't get this to work, you might rebuild mod_python and
specific --with-max-locks=4 option to configure to force lower value
to be compiled in.
