I have tried that actually, and have nuked the lockfiles and re-run
the processes, still no go; new locks appear and the processes just
hang again, eventually printing something to the logfile saying that
it cannot get a lock.  I am totally at loss now, if you are saying the
future timestamp is intentional.
