      Description

      If a system crashes during a cvmfs_server snapshot, the is_snapshotting lock file is left around and after restart the others wait forever. This could be fixed by putting a process id in the lock file and having new snapshot commands that come along do kill -0 on the process id to see if it is still running, if not clean out the lock file.
