Re: Is this normal?

If I try transaction isolation level READ COMMITTED, the second SELECT
doesn't block, which seems reasonable since it isn't supposed to lock
non-existant rows in that case. But I need the lock for my atomic update.
My workaround for now is to do the INSERT before anything else, and then
catch the duplicate key error when the other thread tries to do the same
INSERT. Once the row exists, all future atomic updates work as expected
without deadlocks, of course.

But I still don't understand why my first method didn't work.

Here is the INNODB STATUS after the deadlock in my original post,
with transaction isolation level REPEATABLE-READ:
