 (In [5495]) Merge r5432: Fix lock-order inversion in ban lurker thread

 There is a potential lock-order inversion between a worker thread
 and the ban-lurker and there is nothing we can do about it:  They
 come from opposite ends of the world.

 Resolve this by using a TryLock in the ban-lurker and abandon the
 attempt if we fail to get the lock.
