hitting purge master logs; with cluster replication hangs the mysql server

How to repeat:
set binlog size log, e.g. 20000
make sure there are many rows in cluster_replication.binlog_index
flush logs
purge master logs to '<last log file>'
.... hang

Suggested fix:
when purge is done the cluster_replication.binlog_index get rows deleted
these rows are logged in the binlog
if this logging causes a change of the binlog file because it exceeds the size
the LOCK_index mutex will be attempted to be take _again_ although it is already taken.
this causes the hang.

do not log the changes in cluster_replication.binlog_index
