Hi Rich,

Try manually deleting the gli.lck file in the affected collection.

Regarding your other errors, please try Greenstone 2.51, as we have
fixed many problems with the GLI since 2.50. Be sure to let us know if
you still have any problems!

It would be useful to have the line number at the end of the first line
in your GLI stack trace below.

All the best,

Michael
