 Nothing is running for teachers, yet the semaphore has leaked.  Semaphore
 was not in use before mono applications (tomboy in this case) was run.
 We are basically down.

+It's correct that a semaphore is allocated and not released when mono
+Whenever (either concurrently or consecutively) any other mono
+application is run by the same user, the same semaphore will be
+reused.  The ID to this semaphore is stored in a file in ~/.wapi which
+holds shared state.  This semaphore is used for cross-process
+synchronisation in the windows api emulation layer.
