To support your findings, use SQL Profiler and make sure to capture the SQL:StmtStarting, RPC:Starting, Lock:Escalation, and the ErrorLog events.You will see that the Lock:Escalation event is raised just before the 1203 error is raised. You can use the StartTime data column from SQL Profiler to corelate with the timestamp that is associated with the corresponding 1203 error in the SQL Server error log.
