I am running version 8.0.011e and I frequently encounter the problem that a file lock gets place on the jobs database and never released. Further job submissions or queries cannot be processed because they cannot get a lock on the database.
I also don't see a version 8 in the support forum, so I'm asking the question here.

This is an issue that I have seen only once before, and dealt with an NFS bug with file locking.
Can you please send me a copy of your WebMO configuration file, and a description of your cluster configuration (in particular, which directories, if any, are NFS mounted).
I have seen a problem (only once!) where the WebMO 'user' directory was a remote NFS mounted on the web server (which was a Linux box) and the NFS server as a OpenBSD box.
This caused a problem with filelocking due to a known incompatibility/bug in that combination of NFS implementations.
