I tested it out and it seems to crash the server after leaving the saferoom. I don't see anything in the error logs about it.

I tested in l4d1 windows/linux server, they both work and no crash no error.
what is your l4d1 build version?
PHP Code:

Version 1.0.4.0 (left4dead)

No offense, but I would be very careful to install such "fix".
If I understand correctly, that "fix" is just preventing engine from knowing is CDirector::IsInTransition, when map transition happens. What is a reason to unlock? I think L4D devs done it by intention to prevent entities from been spawned after map ends. Might cause bad things.
Correct me please, if I'm not right about what IsInTransition function is about.

I guess I don't really need the fix. I was just wondering if I could prevent players from getting stuck on finales sometimes. When that "could not find a XX spawn position in 5 tries." spams in console while someone is stuck/loading in and use the radio to call for rescue then nothing is spawning in and they are all stuck there with no rescue coming. I think I might try your "Wait Connection" plugin to delay them from rushing out so quickly and probably have "kick load stuckers" plugin kick out the stuck players quicker.

What maps the problem persists on?

It's not something easily could be solved in L4D1. Both mentioned plugins has no relation to infected. Why do you think this case is related to survivors?
* For L4D2 I wrote [L4D2] Finale Stage hanging fix (finale tank fix), but there no backward port due to different stages system implementation in L4D1.
As temporarily walkaround, try to use !slayall command from DevCmds which aimed to kill every infected on the map.
Also, sometimes manual spawning the tank helps.

Tell us if killing infected solve the issue.

Problem is there are no SI spawning at all when they are stuck loading. It happen twice during a finale, nothing was spawning in and they all just stuck there running around. No admins were around. So they eventually just end up leaving to get the server to restart.

Ah yes, this bug exists in both games. It doesn't just happen on finales only but also on every map as long as there's that one client or more who is/are still transitioning when the others who have already loaded leave the saferoom.

I don't think this one has something related to transition.
I met same bug when I tested the server alone just after restarting.
I bet it is a case with a navigation and specific of faultly and constant selection of the same unsuitable nav zone.
