      Description

      When load testing our new high-volume site before soft launch, we found that we have severe lock contention in org.apache.tapestry5.ioc.internal.services.PerthreadManagerImpl.

      It synchronizes on "this" before invoking ThreadLocal.get() and ThreadLocal.remove(), which I believe is unnecessary.

      During our tests, approximately 35% of all Tomcat threads were waiting for this lock in any of 10 thread dumps taken 15 seconds apart.
