NetBeans: Hang after debugging session

I’ve run into the issue a lot where I will use the debugger, stop the debugger, attempt to run the project again, and it just hangs.  I always forget how to solve the problem so I figured I’d write it down for posterity.

In the build folder of your project, look for “testuserdir/lock”.  If it exists, delete it.

I find the problem manifests itself when debugging Netbeans Platform modules; when you clean and build the module no errors or warnings are reported, but when you clean and build the main project, you get an error:

/Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans 6.8.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/harness/suite.xml:451: Will not delete /Users/nicholasdunn/Desktop/project/build/testuserdir because /Users/nicholasdunn/Desktop/project/build/testuserdir/lock still exists; kill any running process and delete lock file if necessary
BUILD FAILED (total time: 0 seconds)
