When running WeeChat with NFS mounted home, WeeChat always fails with this message :

"WeeChat Error: unable to create/append to log file (weechat.log)
If another WeeChat process is using this file, try to run WeeChat with another home using "--dir" command line option."

As written in flock() manual, this function does not work with NFS filesystem. So WeeChat should check return code of flock() to see if there's a lock on weechat.log or other error, like flock impossible (in this case, we go on without locking file).
