This inane bug has followed me for years, over several different
installations of Linux, including various CertOSs & Ubuntus.

Yes, I added rm .git/index.lock to my fabric scripts that manage the
high-level git commands. The bug sometimes bites just _after_ the rm,
and it sometimes bites when I perform a manual low-level command, such
as git mv.

No, none of my git tasks crashed, and I certainly don't operate any
two git tasks simultaneously. That's the only responses in the forum

If this were the worst of the computer bugs I face, I could ignore it.
So, wtf?
