There are only three concurrency "bugs"

1. The Lost Update Problem
2. The Temporary Update (or Dirty Read) Problem
3. The Incorrect Summary Problem.

Neither of these is related to the granularity of locking. All of  
these are solved through the use of transactions.

If an application uses transactions correctly, then it is free from  
concurrency bugs.
