What kind of tables are you using in MySQL?  Also, are you sure it
was "same time"?  There's a lot of time in one second for one
transaction to commit before another gets in.

(All of that said, this is one of the places where I think the
historical dependence on MySQL shows up: the transaction model just
isn't that strong.)
