I am running MediaWiki v.1.8.2, PHP v. 1.5.1, MySQL 4.1.15. We have  
been intermittently receiving the following MySQL error message:

"MediaWikiBagOStuff::_doquery". MySQL returned error "1213: Deadlock  
found when trying to get lock; try restarting transaction

Can anyone tell me what is causing this error and how to fix it?
