Did you really mean 1.11.2 and not 1.11.12?  1.11.2 is almost 2 years
old.  I haven't tried applying your patch to a more recent release, but
2 years of coding can lead to a lot of conflicts.

If you will provide a diff against a more recent version of CVS plus
some solid test cases for src/sanity.sh, including tests of locking with
links in the repository with and without LockDir set in CVSROOT/config,
and perhaps some documentation additions/corrections for
doc/cvs.texinfo, I will consider this patch.  I am interested in the
functionality but I don't have nearly enough time to do all the cruft
needed for support & maintenance just now.  Please see the HACKING file
and perhaps TESTS for more specific instructions regarding tests and

If you can't or won't provide tests and documentation, consider posting
your patch to the issues database on cvshome.org
<http://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/ProjectIssues> for tracking.  Then
maybe someone will find it and get around to coding the tests & doc
