LjLhi. is there a reasonable way to close a database / remove its lock file when i no longer have a reference to the filestorage, connection or anything, even though i'm no longer using it?20:20

srichterLjL: soemwhere should be a module global referencing the DB global, otherwise garbage collection would pick it up and close the DB21:01
srichterLjL: it is just a matter of finding that global :-)21:02
LjLsrichter: uhm... maybe i didn't wait long enough for the GC to kick in. here's the thing - i'm writing modules for an IRC bot (Phenny), this bot has a feature to "reload" a module (so i don't have to restart the entire bot every time i change some code), but when i reload a module, its globals are lost. it tries to connect to the DB again but it can't, because the lockfile is still there21:03
LjLright now, i've "solved" it by having a separate module that *only* interacts with the DB and does nothing else - i guess that works21:03
srichterso before you reload you basically have to close the DB21:04
srichteryour solution works too21:04
srichterthat is (I think) the approach we took with the reload support in Zoep 2 and 321:05
srichteri.e. we were really selective what we reloaded isntead of reloading everything21:05
