I am not very familiar with replication, but in the general case, this 
often happens because the copy is not done with the same operating 
system user as the subsequent boot or if the permissions are not 
preserved on the files.  Even if the lck file is there, I think things 
should boot ok as long as the permissions for derby to remove the lck 
file are sufficient when Derby boots.
