yumex-dnf is locked

Under Fedora 23, starting yumex-dnf, I got a message that yumex-dnf was locked. I could not find any lock file in /var/cache/dnf and therefore was stuck. Finally, running

yumex-dnf --exit

did kill the faulty process and could start yumex-dnf again…

    Indeed, thanks a lot! Worked for me too, resolving an issue that otherwise
    would have taken ages to track down very quickly.
