No good deed goes unpunished. I landed Bug 652475 today, but that introduced a potential deadlock with `make xpcshell-tests`. It never showed up on TryServer for some reason, but aborts locally for me with a warning about potential deadlock.

The problem is I take the gVolumeScaleLock  and then read the media.volume_sale pref. I imagine that's taking a lock.
