It sounds like the command is locking itself out.  Do you perhaps have
that subdirectory checked out out more than once under your current
working directory or have symbolic links in the repository that would
result in the same thing?  It would be helpful to see the output from
``cvs version'' in your working directory as well as the output from the
above command with the -t global option to trace the execution.
