New Revision: 7797

URL: http://svn.mirrorbrain.org/viewvc/mirrorbrain?rev=7797&view=rev
- try to prevent a race condition with the directory-wise locking (which I
  didn't expect to happen with the fcntl.lockf wrapper, but well), by:
  - trying harder to not accidentally remove a foreign lockfile, by adding the
    lockfile to the dst_keep set() outside of exception handling trees.
  - directly after the lock was acquired, check if the file still exists -- it
    might have been deleted, because unlinking is not blocked by locks.
  - first unlink the lock file, and close it only then.
  This altogether seems to be effective. The race condition that I could
  reproduce by running two jobs at the same time on a huge tree could be
  reproduced in less then a minute, and now it runs since hours.
- for portability reasons, check for EAGAIN and EACCES errors in addition to
  EWOULDBLOCK when locking
