The usual UNIXy thing to do to support multiple users/groups using the same
lockdir is to set the sticky gid bit on the lockdir.  This enables BSD style
directory permission inheritance on many *nices.  That's uysually accomplished
through something like 'chmod g+s <lockdir>'

Of course if both users already have the same default group then you won't
need to do this.  Just set the group write permissions as Donald pointed out.
