Gnucash lock problem on CODA

Hi all,

After spended two weeks to config CODA, finally I got two replica servers and 
four clients up and runing (two clients run on the servers) on Mandrake 9.1.  
I also had to init script (both venus.init and codasrv.init) problems, but 
now it is a history. :-).  The disconnect mode run great. Thanks you guys.

I still have a small problem running GnuCash on CODA.  When I try to open a 
GnuCash database file on CODA filesystem, GnuCash reports that it can not get 
a lock!  Here is the actual message,

"GnuCash could not obtain the lock for
That database may be in use by another user,
in which case you should not open the database."

However, I just ignore it by click on "Open Anyway", and run GnuCash on Coda 
without any other problems.

When I look at the look file closely, I realized that the attributes of the 
lock file is set to be none, i.e. the ls -l shows that

Moreover, the filesize is 0 byte!  So I think this might be the problem.  Do 
you guys have any idea to solve the problem?  Please let me know.  Thanks.

Best regards,
