You only need to do status-wait once, PK has an internal state model. It
doesn't hurt doing it more than once tho.

I think the locking works pretty well now - my tests with "yum install
kernel" and removing powertop in pk-application seem to work as
expected. Is this okay with everyone now? Thanks to you all.
