Oh almost certainly that's the problem. Did you test my test program
on a GFS filesystem ? Doesn't GFS use crypto credentials to prevent
people hijacking root ? If that's the case I bet they break POSIX
semantics w.r.t. this.

Why are you putting the locking db on a GFS filesystem anyway. That's
madness !
