This may happen sometines if you use two sequences in invoices - on different journals, where one sequence type is Standards and the other no-gap

The problem is due to lock on sequence table.

Actually this is probably bug. Ordinary sequence for id should be called in separate transaction. It would limit number of confilts almost to zero.

Yeah, this is a real pain. I'm trying to refactor some code that creates a bunch of objects for a data migration, which are all of similar types. I can't make this parallel and take advantage of multi-CPU systems because it hits serialization issues on the sequence ids (mostly, also some other parts). This really needs finer-grained transaction isolation than the current "everything running in this cursor" type isolation. Particularly for sequences. Looks like I'll have to try some sort of manual cursor commit, close, open dance. Ugh.
