In particular, lock files will no-longer be removed when a lock is closed (released). This is to avoid a race condition in the current implementation.

AFAIK, the ZODB lock_file module is only used to protect file storages. The probability that the race condition in the current locking implementation would lead to problems with file storages is very low, but non-zero. As a result of this change, file-storage lock files (e.g. Data.fs.lock) will be left around.
