Do you mean 'locked with cvs admin -l' or locked as in marked for
editing with 'cvs edit', or locked in some other way?

As I understand it, cvs admin -l locks a specific revision. cvs edit
marks the file for editing, but I believe it will mark each branch

Yes. That's what branches are for. The changes in the branch version of
the file will be saved to the branch, the changes in the main version
will be saved to the main trunk.
