Adept appears locked - how can I fix it?

Somehow I've managed to convince Adept that the packaging database is
constantly in use.  Even though it's not.  Even after a reboot (old windows
habits die hard), it's still giving me this notice when I start it up:

[dialog box]
[title]Read Only mode:  Database Locked - Adept Manager[/title]
[body]You will not be able to change your system settings in any way
(install, remove or upgrade software), because another process is using the
packaging system database (probably some other Adept application or apt-get
or aptitude). Please close the other application before using this
[/dialog box]

Any ideas?  All tips appreciated.
