Look and see if a process with the mentioned Process ID exists or not (using ps and grep or other tools).  If it IS there, then you're trying to restart something that's already going and you should kill the existing process if you really want to restart it.  Or it is NOT there and you have to figure out why its not freeing up its lock.  You should be able clear it, but there are a few different locking mechanisms, so that'd take a bit of digging in docs or source to determine what's appropriate.
