Public bug reported:

I've existed Mailman just closing my terminal which didn't stop it

Since a8 I'm getting a message to use --force to start it which doesn't
delete the locks directory hence doesn't start it.

benste at benste-vpc-sb1c5e:~/Projects/Mailman/mailman-3.0.0a8$ bin/mailman start --force
usage: mailman [-h] [-v] [-C CONFIG]
mailman: error: A previous run of GNU Mailman did not exit cleanly.  Try using --force.

Deleting all files in ./locks enables me to start it again.
