I don't think this is correct since I have never been in a 'mail' group for 
kmail.  I have a lock file in ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail and don't recall 
ever setting 'locking' to none; wherever one does that.

I am no expert in this sort of thing but my lock file has a pid of 1 when I 
quit Kontact and then when kontact restarts it gets a new pid number.   kabc 
has a lock directory created when kontact starts but has no files in the 
directory.  kontact and other modules do not seem to have lock files.  I 
vaguely recall having 'lock file' errors in the past but am unable to recall 
what caused them or fixed them.

So I am absolutely no help but I don't think the first two replies are the 
answer but either may work of course.
