[libvirt-users] release open_disk error

I wonder what the "open error -1" / "release open_disk error" messages in sanlock.log actually mean.

I saw these messages in the log on a KVM host that rebooted, and after running "/usr/sbin/virt-sanlock-cleanup" on that host.
The resources where disks from 2 guests running on another KVM host.

So in fact the disks are still in use, bot got cleaned up by the other KVM host because it thought they were not longer in use...

Several questions:
1. Could this indicate a problem with the lease of these resources on the server that host these guests?

2. Is there a way to reregister these resources, because they are still in use (but not for sanlock it seems)?

3. Overall, is it a bad idea to run virt-sanlock-cleanup?

Some entries from the log file:
538 s1:r35 resource __LIBVIRT__DISKS__:e133401bfdff6979f76d9544ec8a5529:/var/lib/libvirt/sanlock/e133401bfdff6979f76d9544ec8a5529:0 for 1,9,4218
