FWIW, the .#* files are not the lock files but temporary files used to
create the lock files. In case you terminate a process while it is
waiting for the lock, an atexit handler remove those temporary files.
Obviously a crash won't remove them. The lock files themselves have a
".lock" suffix. See gnupg/common/dotlock.c for details.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
