Description Stepan Kasal 2007-08-10 05:08:07 EDT
When I try to run a second instance of pirut, I get an error message:
  "Another application is running which is accessing software information."
When I click OK, pirut ends.

But then, I try again to run the second instance, without ending the first one.
And voila, it starts up without any complaint.
(And by the same mechanism, I can run as many instances of pirut in parallel as
I want.)

Apparently, pirut clears the lock on exit, even the log was granted to another

Aha!  Thanks for the duplicator for this.  Someone mentioned it, but wasn't able
to give the crucial second run bit.  I've fixed for pirut-1.3.10
