Are race conditions an issue in mySQL INSERTs?

Hello.  I am new to the concept of race conditions, and most of my tables have numeric primary keys set to auto-increment.  Is this a potential problem?  As in, is it possible that 2 INSERT statements could fire simultaneously on a table and leave me with 2 rows with matching primary keys?

Nope. SQL is made for that stuff.

A primary key is by definition unique, so there's no possibility of that happening.  Additionally AUTO_INCREMENT is inherently built around a table lock that serializes the allocation of new id's to insert statements.
