Several times recently, I have executed a command on a "file" that was 
apparently "locked".  Any attempts to perform any reads/opens on the 
file would block.  When it happens, the only was out is to terminate 
minTTY session (no ctl-C or ctl-\ will terminate).  Is this a normal 

I really don't now how a file would be locked.  I'm running MinTTY 0.3.5
