Thank you.

Yes, these things do happen.  And I did it on purpose realizing it would
cause the lock.  One of those things you know but don't really think it
through until it's too late.  Kind of like the first time I did an "rm -R *"
and I was in the wrong directory when I did it.

Better now than later though.

this is something you will want to be careful with!  MAKE SURE the process
is not still running...  In the info below you have the machine name, pilot,
and the process id, 25274, which may be used to verify.  Since you used
cntl-c it most likely true that the process is not still running and in fact
was not terminated properly so CVS could not do it's normal clean-up.

These things happen,

Seriously though, I've been trying to purposely break things before the
engineers get free reign cause they will break it.  Ahem, I did a cntl-c
while a very large commit was executing.  

I know what the problem is, it can't get a lock.  Now the doc says to
removethe files that start with `#cvs.rfl', `#cvs.wfl', or `#cvs.lock'.   Ok
but what about directories?   Here's what I've got:


Now does anyone have a script written that will travers the repository and
remove these offending items (like I said, a LARGE commit)?  I'm hoping.  If
not, I intend to write one before I have a major fire.  if there is any
interest, where do I put something like that so everyone can access it?
