Having a repository on a shared file system is a recipe for disaster. 
Unless you have a hetergeneous environment where the file server and all
the clients are running identical software of the file server is a
dedicated file server appliance that's been well tested, I strongly
suggest you rethink the location of your repository.

It should.  There's even a script in contrib/newcvsroot that does that.

The problem with the future is that it keeps turning into the present.
