Yes, the file locking implementation is quit suboptimal (known issue, it affects other software as well), and in this current case it cannot cope with a new lock set over an existing one (which is allowed and should succeed). Samuel Thibault (hurd-i386 buildd maintainer) tried to build python-apt with 'nocheck' in DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS, but it does not honors this option; if implemented, Samuel could build it disabling the test suite.
