More importantly, how to prevent such things as future occurences. 
Certainly, manually checking and removing the lock may work on a per 
instance basis, but, in reality, it appears less than ideal. This problem 
happens way to frequently. Would changing the frequency depending the system 
of qrunner cron alleviate difficult locks? Is this a race condition issue 
with qrunner?
