If two different users run backups, I think it's better to use different lock files.
But anyway, I just changed the behavior (lockfile is deleted when ctrl-c was pressed). The change will be in the next version (3.4.1).

When pressing ctrl-c while a backup is running the storeBackup.lock does not get deleted. When running as root its not a problem. But consider two different users wanting to run a personal backup? If one waits for the other to finish its ok. But if one cancels the backup the other can no longer run any backup because it'll fail getting the lock
