Description From 2010-09-13 16:27:10
We often configure workspace-control to be on a shared filesystem, with some
directories using a symlink to a local directory (var/w-c/lock, secureimages,
etc). This works pretty well. dhcp-config.sh uses the directory the script runs
in, usually /opt/nimbus/libexec/workspace-control/, to create it's lockfile. 

This should be changed to use /var/lock/, like the ebtables scripts.
