Yeah, not only does ckpt_write_err() get called under task_lock, but
the fn returns without ver doing put_task_struct.  (I'd generate and
send the quick trivial patch, but my git tree is in a bit of a debugme
state right now)

Now mind you this shows that your ckpt program isn't sending
CHECKPOINT_SUBTREE with flags.  This in turns means you are probably
not using the ckpt-v15-dev version of user-cr, and if that is
the case it makes your problems with gconf shared file mapping more
suspect ask well...?
