Yes, there are lots of systems that will clean /tmp --- and since the
lock file is an ordinary file (not a socket) pretty much any tmp-cleaner
is going to decide to remove it. I think that I had intended to insert
a periodic touch of the lockfile and forgot to.
Touching it every time through ServerLoop is an overreaction though.
I'd suggest touching it in the checkpoint-process-firing code, which
runs every five minutes (or so?) by default.
