Note that at the bottom of LockFile.py there's an attempt at a stress
test.  It would be good to code review this to make sure it's testing
what we think it should test and what it ought to test <wink>.  It's
also never been really run in an NFS environment.  I don't know if
Peer's using NFS, but if so that would be the first place I'd suspect.
