My experience is that the lock files remains with the Windows version
and the DB actually became unusable with both versions.  I'm guessing
the Enigmail plugin to T'bird leaves the connects to GPG open which
leaves the lock files in place and therefore causes the issues I
experience.  There is also an environment variable `GNUPGHOME' you could
have set.
