The editor-per-directory thing is indeed a feature.  But it only
works in local mode; when you use CVS client/server, you get a
single editor session for the entire commit.

There's no config setting to change this behaviour, but the above
suggests a kludge that might work.  Try checking out your sandbox
with "-d :fork:/my/repo/location" (I may well have the syntax
wrong), to force CVS into client/server mode even though the repo
is on the local machine.

Certainly "-d" will do
what you want, but I suspect it'll slow CVS down more than "fork"
mode would do.
