[rancid] Lock files not being removed

This is a FreeBSD installation.  The /tmp/.*.lock files are not being
removed at the end of the run.  Then, I get about 50 expect/perl
processes that stick around.  Finally, when I got and manually delete
the tmp files I get 7000 messages about stuck lock files.

Has anyone run into this and, if so, is there a fix?
