bug#25232: 24.4; Eliminate - Warning: Desktop file appears to be in use

--text follows this line--

This is not a bug, rather a request for an optimization in desktop startup
If an emacs process is killed (usually because it is left running when
the machine reboots), the next time I restart emacs, I get the
following: "Warning: Desktop file appears to be in use ..." along with the
pid of the former process. And emacs will not begin loading the desktop
until I enter "y" to the prompt. I understand the purpose for the
warning. However, if emacs has saved the machine and pid of the prior
session, it would seem that it should be capable of detecting that the
new instance is running on the same machine and that there is no
process currently on the machine having the previous pid. If those
conditions are met, then there can be no conflict with another running
instance of emacs and the warning and prompt should be skipped.

FYI, I have the following related to desktop support in my .emacs:
(desktop-save-mode 1)
(setq desktop-auto-save-timeout 60)
(setq desktop-restore-in-current-display t)
