Follow-up Comment #1, patch #5053 (project cvs):

I have replied in private e-mail with suggestions about
coding style and reported some bugs with this patch.

The biggest problem with the patch as provided is that
is assumes that flock() and LOCK_EX exist on all platforms
and this is a bad assumption. For example, Solaris 9 does
not provide this functionality. It may be desirable to look
at how the GNULIB getpass function does exclusivity locking
as an alternative approach.

By the way, the patch is no patch presently attached to this
