|There is a lock, and I do believe that associated with it is a process-id. So when another application tries for the same lock, before giving up, the process-id is checked to see if it exists. If it does not, the lock is deleted and the new lock is created.|
I did find that yum put a lock in a subdirectory of /usr Its been a long time since I had to clear it manually.
Also check /tmp Sometimes locks are placed there
