[Vtigercrm-developers] I was seeing this quite often: [1205]Lock wait timeout exceeded

This is kind of an FYI really. I'd seen it before.

This is on a dev server, am using a very recent branch from master on 
code.vtiger.com and I'm the only user and nothing much else is going on. 
I've seen this happen quite a few times during development and testing. 
In this particular case I just tried saving a record to trigger an Event 
Handler and I can make it happen pretty much every time I save this 
particular record... From the user's perspective the save process takes 
ages (several minutes) and eventually the screen reloads and the change 
to the record's data *wasn't* saved...

The dev system I am working on is a migrated vtiger 5.4.0 system...

There were over 200 tables (mostly the _seq but a few others) which were 
still set to MyISAM.

I converted all of them to InnoDB and now the problem seems to have gone 

Hope this helps someone else.
