You left out the trailing comma.  Anyway, it doubles as the RCS file-level
write lock and scratch file.  In other words, nobody else will read/write the
archive file while this file exists, and all chages are written to the lock
first then mv'd over the original when complete.

Yes, as the last step.  This keeps archive file operations looking atomic.

Fix your Samba options or switch to pserver.  All sorts of people will tell
you not to use Samba or NFS to access a repository at all, of course, but some
people like to try anyhow.  Search the mail archives for more information.
This question gets asked a lot.
