Yes I just discovered it - LFS has a general clean of the /var/run and /var/lock in their boot files.
I wouldn't be supprised if other distro's did something similar - maybe the default lockdir should be 
moved to a more safer directory.

I will reconfigure samba to use /var/lib/samba/tdb as its lock directory. That way its unique to
 samba and save me some grief and frustration.
