Problem in table unlocking

Some times while dml operation is done on a table, during that process that table is implicitly locked. But it is not implicitly unlocking. This is not happening to all the tables in the module, but only to a specific table. We are working on Mysql 5.1 server and the table type is InnoDB. The table is locked till you explicitly unlock it. I am not getting solution to it.

Any one please let me know why this is happening and what is the solution.

"The correct way to use LOCK TABLES with transactional tables, such as InnoDB tables, is to set AUTOCOMMIT = 0 and not to call UNLOCK TABLES until you commit the transaction explicitly. When you call LOCK TABLES, InnoDB internally takes its own table lock, and MySQL takes its own table lock. InnoDB releases its table lock at the next commit, but for MySQL to release its table lock, you have to call UNLOCK TABLES. You should not have AUTOCOMMIT = 1, because then InnoDB releases its table lock immediately after the call of LOCK TABLES, and deadlocks can very easily happen."

Thanks oleggold.
I want a little more clarification from you. I have gone through the link you have provided. I am unable to understand the statement 'InnoDB releases the lock at the next commit'. What is next commit ?
