I was reading this online:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Many users, and some programmers, don't understand that terminating a
process does not always release locks. Switching off your workstation
before you go home does not always release locks. Locks are released
only when changes are committed or rolled back.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Isn't it true though that if you end your database connection, the lock
will go away?  If not, how would you send the final commit or rollback?
