InnoDB, 4.1.20, INS/DEL/TX -- Why table-level locking?

Just started investigating InnoDB after having used MyISAM tables in
the 4.0.12 version, almost immediately ran into a locking issue with
INSERTs, DELETEs, and transactions.

Given the following table:
CREATE TABLE test1 (
f1 varchar(32) default NULL
)

and a steady stream of INSERTs from a command-line shell:
jc@soyuz:~$ while true; do /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -S
/tmp/mysql-4.1.sock -u tester -D jlb -A -N -s -q -e "INSERT INTO test1
VALUES('`date`')"; done

why is it that the following session blocks the INSERTs due to locking?
jc@soyuz:~/tmp$ /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -S /tmp/mysql-4.1.sock -u
tester -p -D jlb

mysqlBEGIN ;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

mysqlDELETE FROM test1 WHERE f1 LIKE 'asdf;ljkas;fjd;adsfads%' ;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.05 sec)
