Re: Emacs leaves many .#file symlinks even after exiting from Emacs (related to file-locking)

I received an email from someone who is also bothered by this
behavior (or should I call it a bug?).
Does anyone know how to prevent it?

I cannot identify exactly under what conditions it occurs, but
Emacs (I'm using CVS emacs on 2009-09-11, but would probably
happen under CVS HEAD as well) leaves a lot of symlinks of the
.#file -> address@hidden:boot_time
`filelock.c' is creating the symlink for file-locking purposes
but is failing to delete it.
Under my current directory consisting of 28 regular files,
I see three such instances:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ken ken 25 Oct 22 17:07 .#foo -> address@hidden:1256147335
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ken ken 25 Dec 1 22:32 .#foo2 -> address@hidden:1259696496
lrwxrwxrwx 1 ken ken 25 Dec 1 22:39 .#foo3 -> address@hidden:1259696496
Is this a bug that happens to people other than myself? Or is it
just me, who extensively use indirect buffers and work under
multiple frames? Also, if any, how do I prevent Emacs from
creating such symlinks.
