poor message on lock contention

Bug Description

Hi. I pulled bzr.dev and bzr.0.8 at the same time, into the same
repository, and I got the following error message.

: [bagfors@zyrgelkwyt]$ ; bzr pull
Using saved location: http://bazaar-vcs.org/bzr/bzr.0.8/
bzr: ERROR: Could not acquire lock
UserWarning: file group
url=/home/bagfors/src/bzr/bzr.0.8/.bzr/branch/>) was not explicitly
 warn("file group %r was not explicitly unlocked" % self)
[Exit 3 ]

pulling again works...

I understand that there is a locking issue here, but I see two
problems with this
1) The error message is really bad. Will confuse a user

This is the current error:

Using saved location: sftp://juju//srv/bzr/public/branches/bzr/jam-integration/
bzr: ERROR: Could not acquire lock LockDir(file:///home/jameinel/dev/bzr/.bzr/repository/lock)

Do we still consider this to be a big bug?
Also, I have the 'wait-on-locks' branch outstanding, which would turn this into a message that bzr is going to start waiting on the lock, rather than an error that it cannot grab it yet.

Should get merged in 0.12, needs a little cleanup.
