eups distrib install
it holds an "exclusive lock" on the EUPS dir.
Thus, trying to run 'setup' during this time results in the error message, e.g.,
setup: Unable to take shared lock on /Users/wmwv/stackdir: an exclusive lock is held by [user=wmwv, pid=53146]
I'm find with eups holding a lock when it's actually doing something to the EUPS directory, but it shouldn't hold a lock when it's compiling a particular package.
I note that despite the repeated statements that "eups" and "eups distrib" are entirely different things, they do share the same EUPS variables, and the same component in Jira.
