In theory yes, but I don't like it.
gpg2 already uses a better algorithm to detected stalled processes
holding a lock. For gpg1 I implemented that algorithm a few days ago.
I believe that this will solve the problem.
The original problem was that gpg did not remove the lock file even it
the process claiming to hold the process already died - It could be
mounted on NFS and thus gpg had no chance to reliable detect a stalled
process. The fix implemented stores the node name in the lockfile
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
