I've had the same problem, and I found it a little hard to find the
right thing in the source code, so maybe this helps: I think what you
want is "(setq create-lockfiles nil)", which doesn't steal the
lockfile but ignores it; if you need to make sure it's stolen, try
overriding `ask-user-about-lock'. Of course, file locking is there for
a reason, so I strongly suggest making sure your bbdb is being backed
up regularly before trying this.
