I appreciate the insight. I found that I was missing the <cflock> and was
trying to figure out what the exact rules were for using it.

Your timing couldn't be better!

  Is there something written down somewhere that defines where and when to
  use the <cflock>. I looked around and couldn't find it. I am speaking for
  next developer that is looking for this information of course.

Thank You
