CPAN process still running????

 CPAN process still running????

I have started experimenting with the CPAN shell the last couple of days.
After an unsuccessfull attempt at downloading and installing
"Bundle-libnet", (by running perl -MCPAN -e "install Bundle::libnet" or
something like that) I did CTRL-C to break out of the loop. My next attempt
to access the shell gave the following message:

        D:\users>perl -MCPAN -e shell

        There seems to be running another CPAN process (306). Contacting...
        kill process failed!

Now, even after rebooting my machine I still get the same error, and you can

Can anyone tell me, is there a way of reseting the {*filter*}y thing? Is there a
place where the module is keeping info on past sessions? What's wrong???

Thank you in advance for your time..

CPAN will create a file called .lock in a directory called .cpan in your home
directory (in Unix) or in the root of the current drive (On Win32) you
should remove that file ...

Win32 :

P:\.cpan>dir

 Volume in drive P has no label
 Directory of P:\.cpan

.              <DIR>        15/06/99  16:49 .
..             <DIR>        15/06/99  16:49 ..
LOCK~1                   9  15/06/99  16:49 .lock
sources        <DIR>        15/06/99  16:47 sources
         1 file(s)              9 bytes
         3 dir(s)        2,041.50 MB free

Unix:

fatmog:~/.cpan$ ls -al
total 7
drwxr-xr-x   6 tdcjs    users        1024 Jun 15 15:50 ./
drwxr-xr-x  14 tdcjs    root         1024 Jun 15 15:42 ../
