Any idea what this means? I know it indicates a programming error, but has it been fixed?

Could not acquire lock.

It just means that RS couldn't get access the package management system at the time it ran. It will retry later. It isn't a programming error, however there may be a better way to get the information it needs with less contention, I'll add it to the list of things to look at.

Sorry, af123. I didn't word my reply very well. It was meant to refer the OP to the answer I received when I had asked the question.

I need the odd nudge : ) I don't always remember everything that's posted here. I'll improve the behaviour in the next release. Quite a few things to look at after work today now!
