  Fix bug "fts can SIGSEGV ZG during reindex". This was caused by searching while rebuilding the index. The Xapian API is not thread safe in any shape or form so protect all read and write access with a lock.

If you want to try and help verify that this bug is indeed fixed you need at least r67 of the fts extension. Then open d-feet and run the ForceReindex() method on the index - and quickly open Synapse or the Unity dash and type a search string.

As this is a race it may or may not be elusive. So run the above a few times.
