Issue 201 lock #209
I suppose stealing "stale" lockfiles is pretty common, so I'm ok with this. But it makes me a bit nervous. Personally, I would only want to steal a lockfile if I knew the current holder was dead and/or I gave permission to steal it (it seems that setting the stale timeout is tantamount to giving permission). Would it be prudent to issue a warning when this happens?
