SubjectRe: How do I kill a process that is locked to a resource

Concerning ZIP.
I use a 2.0.27 kernel and the included ppa and such. My ZIP does not open
when i press the button and it's still mounted. The button works like a
button on most CD-ROM-drives. Software can lock. I guess what my ZIP does
is how it's supposed to be while using ZIP?
