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.
Linux SuSE 9.2
KDE v. 3.3.4
KMail v. 1.7.3
