Hi Nicolas,

First, thanks a lot for testing Kea and reporting the issues you found.

I have created ticket #3591 for the issues with lock file and pointed
out to this thread. Feel free to comment on it or add any extra details.
I'll look at it next week and will see what can be done about it.

Will you be willing to test a proposed fix once we have it? It will be
available in our git repository.
