Just for the records:

I have seen exactly the behaviour you are reporting on a Windows

Some poeple might remember my problems with getting CVS to run on DOS I
posted some time ago. My setup is now as follows:

I checkout everything on a Windows box, and completely work from the
Windows share on the DOS box. That is, nothing is done locally in DOS,
but all in the (shared) directory.

Now, if I just worked in the directory in the DOS box and I am ready to
stop working, I am not allowed to "cvs release -d" the directory. If I
do this, I get exactly the message you mentioned above. Interestingly, I
have now the following situation:

1. I cannot delete the directory from the Windows share until I have
   waited some time (> 15 minutes, it seems to me)
2. I cannot issue a "cvs release -d" afterwards, because CVS does not
   recognize the directory as a CVS repository anymore. It seems to me
   that some administrative files are already removed.

(and: Yes, I have made sure on the DOS box that I am not in the
directory on the network drive anymore: The sandbox can be found in
r:\dos\<SANDBOXNAME>, and I issue a cd \ in r: before trying to release
the sandbox.)
