It's looks like your table still open by the server.

Just try to do "FLUSH TABLES" immediately before running myisamchk and
guarantee no SQL questions will use this table until it's checked.
To run myisamchk and server "in parallel" remove "--skip-locking" argument
to the mysqld (somewhere in safe_mysqld), but it will slow down your server
