Special:MergeAccount crashes with an SQL error when importing local names from a locked database due to a conflicting read lock.
Relevant error message:
A database query syntax error has occurred ... from within function "CentralAuthUser::importLocalNames". MySQL returned error "1223: Can't execute the query because you have a conflicting read lock (10.0.0.238)".
Well, large swaths of MediaWiki break in this case. :)
A check for declared read-only state and a graceful bowing out might help, though.
