They don't have the lock file on an NFS partition, that was the first thing
we asked.

They are however still on a 1.2.6-based version of our server, we'll be
bringing them up to the 1.3.0 based system shortly.  Sounds like the fact
that 1.2.6 *didn't* have a lockfile for multiple ports may be a problem
here.  We needed a good reason to convince them to make the change (despite
the fact the changeover is painless), this may be it.

Thanks Dean & Dirk!
