in reply to SOLVED [flock on Ubuntu 9.10]

I was under impression that flock would prevent this app from running multiple instances.

Apologies for the terseness, but I can't imagine for the life of me how the code you've posted could correspond to your impression in any way. How would locking a file prevent the current process from running?

Have a look at File::Pid::Quick.
