[Mono-list] mono-service2 - where did service.exe.lock go?

Turns out this was more my issue than mono-service ... though I think
mono-service still might want to handle things more elegantly?

The problem is I have a worker object with internal threading that
gets kicked off with Worker.Start().  The issue is I was accidentally
calling it twice: once in the constructor of the service class and
once in the OnStart override.  Removing the call from the ctor fixed

However, when the bug was present, the service did start fine but the
lock file was never written.  I'll see if I can create a simple test
case and see if client code is causing the issues and whether or not
mono-service might be improved.

Thanks for the patience!
