Subject: leaves lock file in home directory
Date: Sat, 05 Dec 2009 23:57:57 +0200
Package: gksu
Version: 2.0.2-2+b1
Severity: minor

After every use, a file ~/.gksu.lock is left in the home directory.  Presumably,
a lock file should be cleaned up when the program that created it exits.

Alternatively, if that is not how it is supposed to work, please add
documentation about this file somewhere.
