on shutdown of kmail, it complains the 'resource std.vcf is locked by program ""'.
very tricky to reproduce:
1)create "new mail", leave composer window open (at this moment, when closing Kontact, both windows would be correctly closed);
2)send a mail via komqueror "send URL as mail" (probably the crux this invokes kmail);
3)after mail is sent, close Kontact (now the composer window stays alive and kmail shows icon in systray, see difference to 1) );
4) via icon context close kmail
-> resource locked, can not write, etc (4 requesters)
all my contacts vanished 3 times this year. 2 times could recover them from a std.vcf_<n> file.
Guess this is related to this resource-lock error in combination with reboot
have two stale locks size 0

(plus a few older ones)
probably the above mentioned tricky procedure is nonsense: simple "new contact" fails too - same error-msg.
So modify the bug report to
"there are stale locks. Why - and how to know & get rid of them as a normal user?"
(should i "RESOLVE" ?)
I think you describe the same issue as in bug 137515.
KMail's composer uses the addressbook, so it is affected by the lock problem as well I guess.
If you think this is the same as in bug 137515 as well, please close this bug report and add your comments to that one.
