Several possibilities:

1. uugetty is using /usr/spool/uucp (massively outdated).

2. uugetty is using a different lock file format and is saving in
   either /(usr|var)/spool/locks or /var/lock.

3. something else is wrong.


Check to make certain that you compile all of the (serial) device
stuff to use HDB lockfiles in /var/lock.  That includes dip, pcomm,
kermit, and the uucp stuff.
