I can't help you with the problem you're currently
experiencing but I may be able to help you by possibly
eliminating the need for "cvs admin" in your
development process.

Have you taken a look at the "advisory locks" patch
available at SourceForge under project RCVS?  It
enables developers to do "cvs edit -c" and "cvs ci -c"
thereby simulating locks.  Moreover, doing a "cvs edit
-f" will allow multiple developers to "lock" the file
so that they wouldn't have to unlock someone else's
