during testing of bug#41295 a race-condition in tc-take-over (node-failure-handling) was discovered that could lead to operations(locks) not 
taken-over, and subsequently getting stale.

this could lead to subsequent node-restart failing, and application
endlessly getting into lock-conflict with operation that would never go away
unless node was restarted.

How to repeat:
new test-prg (for bug#41295)

Documented bugfix in the NDB-6.2.17 and NDB-6.3.21 changelogs as follows:

        A race condition in transaction coordinator takeovers (part of
        node failure handling) could lead to operations (locks) not
        being taken over and subsequently getting stale. This could lead
        to subsequent failures of node restarts, and to applications
        getting into an endless lock conflict with operations that would
        not complete until the node was restarted.

(Fix appears in 6.3.21 rather than 6.3.20 per email from Jörg.)
