You might have already done this, but if you have shell access you can use
lsof to check for a file that is locked or in use by another process.  If
you don't have shell access, I think you can load OSProcess from squeakmap
and do:

UnixProcess thisOSProcess command: 'lsof'

(or something like this)

lsof is available from freshmeat (http://freshmeat.net/projects/lsof/) if
it's not preinstalled in your distribution, but this obviously won't help
you if you don't have a way to install it.
