You're completely right.  If the process can't be killed, rebooting
would be a better idea than deleting the lockfile while the process is
still running.  (I wouldn't have bothered with a "you're right" post if
there weren't somebody else apparently still claiming the lockfile will
kill the process;  it won't.)
