Description of problem:
This is the same bug as #84134 logged against RHEL3.
When an application dies unexpectedly while holding a file lock on an
NFS mounted filesystem, the nfs-utils doesn't clean up the NFS locks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run an application that writes data to an NFS mounted drive.
2. Terminate the application with a kill -9
Actual Results: The there are still read and write locks on the file
to the dead processes' PID.
Expected Results: There would be no locks held.
This is fixed in later FC kernels....
I'm still seeing the problem in 2.6.8-1.521, what version are you running?
this should have been fixed in the 2.6.9 update, though today theres even a
2.6.10 update available.
please reopen if its still not fixed.
