rancid router hung on loghost?

Since a couple of hours I get:

rancid router hung on loghost?  Old lockfile still exists:
-rw-r-----   1 rancid   rancid         0 Jun  2 20:13 /tmp/.router.run.lock

As usual I didn't change anything (TM) :-)

I see some rancid processes

(loghost:nipper 2 ) ps -alef -opid,user,stime,args | grep rancid
17398   rancid 00:30:49 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/rancid gw.de-cix.net
17397   rancid 00:30:49 sh -c (rancid-fe \gw.de-cix.net:cisco)
 4090   rancid 20:13:01 /bin/sh /usr/local/bin/control_rancid router

 4084   rancid 20:13:01 /bin/sh /usr/local/bin/do-diffs
17396   rancid 00:30:49 /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/bin/par -q -n 5 -c
rancid-fe \{} /var/rancid/router/ro

but have no idea why they got stuck. Looks like processes from 20:13 are
still active though all other processes started at 21:13, 22:13, ...
wnet thru. Removing /tmp/.router.run.lock does not really help as the
same problem reappears some hours later.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
