take the same lock twice in the same process.  However, as
previously mentioned, I can deal with that by accessing
the file via a singleton.

Now I have noticed that closing the file releases the
lock, so I wonder if use of F_ULOCK is really necessary.
I am calling it in case it releases resources that the
close() might miss.
