    Description

      As far as I can tell the error message "The operation timed out while waiting for a lock", can happen quite normally when the cron runs but the previous run has not completed. Therefore this isn't an error, it's a legitimate condition.

      This can cause admins confusion and the language should be toned down a bit.
