We handle it like any other error that occurs during commit/whatever.
Anything else would require restructuring the wc code in very
significant ways, AFAIK.

Also, doing such cleaning up would itself takes a long time on a gcc
working copy, since it has a ton of directories. I imagine if we used
fcntl locking instead of lock files, we could just go away and the
kernel/libc would clean up after us.
