The article at
<https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=3D20190624#guixsd> mentions
things like:

  For instance, after installing Icecat, I installed a few other desktop
  programs and then found Icecat had disappeared from my path again.

It=E2=80=99s likely that the person ran several =E2=80=98guix package=E2=80=
=99 commands in
parallel, and that one undoed the effects of the other.

Julien suggested that =E2=80=98guix package=E2=80=99 could grab a lock file=
, and I guess
it could simply error out when the lock is already taken.
