Hehe! That's ok.
But to to make a suggestion, may I say that simply returning a "busy / 
please try again" error would work just as fine? Each open window are 
acting as if they are two different connections, so treat them as such. 
What does other DB's like MySQL do? My guess is a busy/try again error
