Hmmm... could there be an as-yet undiscovered bug in force-commits,
maybe? I'll have a look over the code to see if anything looks suspicious.

With respect to the other sub-thread where locking issues are discussed

running, an older version which doesn't understand LockDir? Given what
you've described about the shop, it doesn't sound likely.
