You said:

So oviously you know about M-:. Use:

  M-: (file-locked-p (buffer-file-name)) RET

(Though I have no idea what this is supposed to tell us.)

Also, what does:

M-: (system-name) RET

At this point, what do the following show:

ls -ld /tmp/.*
ps -p 21418    # replace with number from above
ps -u elrodd | grep emacs

But again, simply compiling your own Emacs 24.3 may be easier.
