I think this is user error. `bin/mailman start` is just a little front- end that forks and execs the actual master script. This runs in the background and detaches itself from the controlling terminal, so exiting the terminal is not meant to stop the master, or any of its own subprocesses. I think the locks aren't getting deleted because everything's still running.
You should not use --force in this case. Only use --force when you know the master is no longer running. Use `bin/mailman status` to find that out. In your case, just open up a new terminal and run `bin/mailman stop` and everything should work properly.
