Given that we have no waiting for locks, this is not _super_ problematic, but it might be wrong: You'd get a lock failure on dpkg's lock, rather than lock-frontend. [Test case] Watch lock release with strace and see that it unlocks the right way. [Regression potential] Some other locking races or something?
