I don't care that much atm, because I'm a) focussing on 0.9, b) working
on exams right now and c) being majorly demotivated again.

But it sounds like a good idea to use a timeout and fail. Maybe use the
timeout to check if the queue is still working (that means emptying) and
only fail if it's not?
Have you thought about the case when both sides try to renegotiate the
format? Or upstream renegotiations at all?
And you probably have run our testsuites as well as totem and rb, right?
release_locks in state changes works correctly?

We'll get bug reports when the deadlocks happen...
