[RFE] up2date should remove any rpm lock files before starting
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:11 EST
Description of problem:
if there are lock files, stale or otherwise, update might
not being able to use rpm correctly.
jbj has suggested that `up2date` just remove these files
when it starts up.
this seems insane. if you remove the lockfiles, might you not end up
interrupting a running transaction?
