I guess it shouldn't try to create the lock file if it already exists. The
-autoupdate scripts all now delete the lock file when they have finished,
so that exim.exim can create a new one.
I think all I need to actually do is stop it logging an error in this
condition, as it should still be able to get a shared lock on the file as
that only needs read permission.
