Solitaire is Deadlock-Prone

Solitaire is one of my favorite games. Recently, I discovered that it is
deadlock-prone. Why? I think you who have ever played it have noticed
it. Sometimes I cannot make any progress and is forced to give up the
game session because one or more important cards are buried.

I think this is interesting because people tend to use Philosopher to
explain deadlock.

PS: I use PySol in Linux for playing. PySol contains several games. The
game I play is Klondike.
