Previously, IPC would remove sockets it considers to be "inactive"
based on whether they have responded. Change this to create lock
files in addition to socket files, so that we can determine if
secondary process is active before attempting to communicate with
it. That way, we can distinguish secondaries that are alive but
are not responding, from those that have already died.
