Actually, though atomicity and locking are disjoint concepts, it sure
looks like import is skipping directory locks.  Please see my previous post.

But since import is still using the old RCS-style file locks via
RCS_checkin, I would think corruption would still be avoided, but now
that I am looking closer, maybe add_rcs_file in import.c isn't even
using those?  Regardless, my suggestion in the previous post on fixing
the problem should still apply.
