Yeah that is okay. This is a bug in tinderbox that happens to leave a
/tmp/trinderdlock directory behind when not properly shutdown. So when
starting a new job tinderbox does not start the job and just waits because
it thinks it can't get the lock - I usually see that after some hours and
remove that directory to get it going. I've done this a few hours already
so the jobs should finish soon.
