[Samba] "could not open file /var/lock/samba/unexpected.tdb"

I have a Samba problem on an AIX server:
We are running SAMBA version 3.2.0

In the log.nmbd file I have the following entry:

tdb(/var/locks/unexpected.tdb): tdb_oob len 1111638618 beyond eof at 8060928

can I do a "> unexpected.tdb"  to remove the contents of this file without having to stop Samba?

Kind regards
