Hung CVS process

From: Rick Genter

I have an OpenBSD 3.3 system that I am using as a CVS server, with several 
clients connecting using WinCVS from Windows 2000 and Windows XP machines. 
Today one of my users did "something" that ended up with a hung CVS process on 
the server. By hung I mean that when I looked it had accumulated over 2 hours 
of CPU time, was using 99% of the CPU, and the CPU was spending 14% in User 
space and 85% in System space. Has anyone seen anything like this before? Any 
idea of a cause? 

I ended up having to kill -9 the process (no response to kill -TERM or kill 
-HUP). I'm concerned that the repository may be in an inconsistent state, or 
that there may be lock files hanging around. How do I check the integrity of 
the repository?

Thanks in advance.
