When trying to exactly determine when the startupdone procedure is fully done on the client machine, and it's databases are ready for read-only access, the DB_EVENT_REP_STARTUPDONE event notification cannot be used because:

The following steps should reproduce the issue:

  1. Load the master with a lot of data;
  2. Launch the replication process on the client machine;
  3. Try to open a database on the client machine;
  4. BDB sleeps and then returns an error: "Operation locked out. Waiting for replication lockout to complete".
