Variables that are 'shared access', ie, multiple users/threads can access
them, should be cflocked whenever they are read or written to.

The simple rule is:
If you TYPE server., application., or session. when creating, cfparaming,
isdefiniing, cfsetting a variable, you MUST use cflock around the access.
