Description of problem:
While booting my RHES3 system I saw a message on the console telling
something like:

cannot removed /var/lock/samba/printing because it's a directory.

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit cleans up the /var/lock/ directory structure
during the boot process. The problem is that it doesn't remove
subdirectories. It only removes files. So the contents of the dir
/var/lock/samba/printing is not removed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. service smb start
2. reboot
3. watch at the boot messages
