lock wait transaction time out

I am running MySQL 4.0.20 on redhat 9.

But i always facing a problem of that the table is being lock.
i see from the process list that i am the only one trying to update the record and the rest of the connection do nothing. Below is the log file i get when i try to show the innodb status when the table is lock.

I dont know how to analyze this, can someone expert tell me how to solve this problem? How this problem happen?

I suspect you will get better luck on a forum specifically for mysql such as http://forums.mysql.com/ . Although this particular group on this board is focused on MySQL, It, typically, is more geared for the querries and interaction with PHP.

My intent is not to discourage you from posting here, but to know what you are up against.

If however, you do find a solution, (on another forum or here), please post the solution here so that others may benefit.

Good luck in your search, and I only wish I could be more helpful.
