Could not lock User prefs

Is this something to worry about ? running on Ubuntu latest snapshot and running as openhab:openhab

2016-12-31 16:17:35.073 [WARN ] [java.util.prefs ] - Could not lock User prefs. Unix error code 20.
2016-12-31 16:17:35.073 [WARN ] [java.util.prefs ] - Couldn’t flush user prefs: java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException: Couldn’t get file lock.

Having same issue, except different error code.

Effectively, JAVA is trying to do some file lock management. If the JAVA User Root is not set, then Java does not have a path to work with.

I edited runtime/bin/setenv to set the userRoot.

# set java options


Did you ever find a solution? I’m getting Error Code 2 also, but the solution below doesn’t help.
