The file is no longer there.  This error occurred on Feb 01 according to a log 
file we maintain.  We just noticed that the entire module did not get tagged.  
Could it be that a subsequent process to that area of the module already 
removed the lock sometime between then and now?

I wish the file was still there, but it's not.

Why would a lock file not get deleted?

Have a look into the file, especially the date and time. Is it (very) old?

There might have been an older operation that did not correctly finish, and the 
lock file has been left over. In this case, the lock file would be rather old. 
I would consider removing it by hand, then.

If it is not old, then something else is going on, and I would refrain from 
removing it.
