Right this is the primary issue with pessimistic locking (contention).  The parent locking suggestion is just a workaround. We still want to look into the issues you describe, as even without locking the parent node, the changes should still be atomic. Manik was looking into one of the issues you opened, so I will ping him when he gets back.   

Further analysis and patches are always welcome. Feel free to join the developer forums and mailing list if you like.
