Yes, but you'll want to send the right sort of flags when you open the
gdbm file. According to the documentation at:
you can open the database in locked mode automatically; I think you have
to feed in the parameter 'u' to actually get gdbm to ignore locking, so
you should be ok. I have to admit, though, that I haven't used this
You might want to ask your question on the main Python newsgroup as well
