I can't reproduce this behaviour. Whether GNATSDB is set or not, the command
"pr-edit --lockdb" seems to lock nothing at all. Neither does "pr-edit
--database=<db> --lockdb". On the other hand, "pr-edit --lock <user> <PR>"
honors GNATSDB as well as the --database option.

There must be more to it than that, but I haven't yet been able to figure out
