I don't disagree at all.
They are unique to Psyche and this beta. Both of which suffer from rpm 
hangs and database corruption. Quite possibly completely unrelated of 
course, and I don't claim to know the cause or a real solution. I was 
under (the probably mistaken) assumption that it was the __db* files 
themselves that were being referred to as lock files.

During boot, those files are removed by rc.sysinit, like so:
$ grep "__db" rc.sysinit
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
which only further led me to believe the the __db* files were not a 
desirable thing to have around.
