This problem existed for a while a couple of months ago, to the point that I had to remember to quit Omnifocus before shutting down, but lately I haven't had to do this. Until today when I could not open my task lists until I found this post...
How exactly are you "initiating a machine shutdown"? If you aren't just powering off the computer, or having it force-quit OmniFocus, the shutdown procedure should tell every application to quit, just as if you'd done the File->Quit command in each one. If you just hold down the power button until the machine shuts off, OmniFocus won't be told to quit and won't remove the lock file.
