[R] 00LOCK error with site-library

I have identical R.profiles and R_HOME directories set up on both my local machine and a remote linux cluster. To keep my libraries and R install separate, I use a site-library on both machines.

The first line of my .Rprofile is:
'.libPaths(new= "~/R_HOME/site-library") #tell R where site-library is'

Until R-2.6.0 this was working fine on both machines, but since I have been unable to upgrade packages on the remote machine. Every attempt at upgrade results in a directory '00LOCK' being place in the site-directory and then the upgrade fails.

This has happened with R-2.6.0, 2.6.1, and now with R-devel (2.7.0).

If I have this setup incorrectly I am puzzled as to why it works with my local machine and why it worked with versions of R prior to 2.6.0.
