I do see a lot of .lock file when starting cyrus:


This has already been reportet in the Ubuntu bug tracker #1010424 two
years ago:



    # Clean stale entries
    find "$LOCK_DIR" -mindepth 1 -depth -size 0 # -delete
    find "$PROC_DIR" -mindepth 1 -depth -name '[0-9]*' # -delete

Is it safe to use the -delete option and to remove old .lock files at
startup? Or what are these old lockfiles for?
