Unfortunately, you aren't explaining WHICH "problem" you are asking 
about (the quotes because one is not a problem)

Are you asking "why does my gnucash crash when closing the cash ledger?" 
That may be a problem. When does this happen? All the time? Or just when 
you try to close the account while in the middle of entering a 
transaction, etc.?

Or are you asking "if gnucash crashes OR the entire system crashes while 
gnucash is open the lock file is left behind. I have to override using 
"open anyway" or manually delete the file. What is wrong?" NOTHING -- 
that is the expected behavior of any software that is using this method 
of preventing simultaneous access by more than one user.
