that's possible, though unlikely, as no other processes then the
ods-enforcerd and ods-signerd are running continiously to keep
the lock. I might have run ods-hsmutil/ods-ksmutil, but those
should not be keeping any lock files around?

Similarly, it seems the HSM is accessed as uid or euid root, because
when using AEP, the process is looking for /root/Keyper. I'm also
not sure about their library properly handling HOME= or
KEYPER_LIBRARY_PATH= as these seem to be ignored some times, or
perhaps it gives up on a permission denied (eg in /root/) before
trying other locations.

Does anyone know the "machine" file syntax to pin the Keyper related
files in 1 location despite userid and environment variables?
