Ah, this would be why I deferred to Keith. I apparently am not as 
knowledgable as I thought :)

I'll try to catch him in IRC tmrw and see if we can get you an answer. 
Otherwise, I'll have to go digging into code to try to figure out an answer.

of files as orphaned locks labelled 'lock-000000xx', are these the locks I can delete?

to Keith for confirmation first :)
