There is a lock, $GIT_DIR/gc.pid. However we are prepared to deal with
stale locks, and may have slipped somehow. The test is in
builtin/gc.c, lock_repo_for_gc(). Oh wait, we check for lock (and exit
if lock exists) _after_ we print the message (in cmd_gc). That might
be it.. If it so, maybe we can reorder some code to prevent this bogus
message, but has to be careful and do it before daemonizing..
