If there is no rancid process running, then you can just delete the
lockfile. I occasionally found that sometimes if you rancid-run from the
CLI then ^C to kill it quickly, it won't clear up the lockfile.
If once you've tidied up and let it run again the lockfile re-appears and
rancid doesn't complete properly, you'll need to look into why it is
taking so long. If you can identify which device, try running in debug
mode which might give some clues.
