Default /var/lock/subsys/shorewall and /var/state/shorewall

"Also, do you get the error:
touch: cannot touch `/var/lock/subsys/shorewall': No such file or directory

Ref. man shorewall.conf.

Appears that a recent update intended to
replace the lock /var/lock/subsys/shorewall
with the state flag /var/state/shorewall.

"mkdir state" in /var and update
SUBSYSLOCK=/var/state/shorewall .
Shorewall will create and remove /var/state/shorewall.

Allowing replacement of shorewall.conf in
the update might do this automatically.
