I just noticed this in my locks directory:
usw-sf-list1:/var/local/mailman/bin# l ../locks/
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 16384 May 9 10:40 ./
drwxrwsr-x 21 mailman mailman 4096 Apr 10 15:06 ../
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mailman mailman 59 May 7 05:42 jboss-user.lock.usw-sf-list1.26443
(prcoss 26443 doesn't exist obviously)
Note that this is not bad because it doesn't keep the list locked. There is
probably a small race in the removal of the temporary lockfile that you link
I'll delete this one and see if others pop up over time.
