Bug Description

Found an fixed crash on IOC shutdown caused by a combination of the new link support and unittesting changes in 3.16.01. dbCloseLinks() in iocInit.c was changed to do a partial cleanup of DB_LINKs. This frees the link private structs to avoid a leak, but doesn't break up the locksets as this would be a waste of time.

The fix is to restore the previous behavior and only cleanup CA_LINKs unless run in "isolated" (unittest) mode.

The crash occurs (at least) within dbProcess() when the half disconnected DB_LINK is traversed.

When this happens, the main thread is in dbCloseLinks().
