Sorry, the CVS lock file is named #cvs.lock, not #cvs.locks.  From your
description of what's happening, I'm betting that that's not a typo and
that your stray directories really are named #cvs.locks.  In that case,
somebody (not CVS) created them -- perhaps a defect in some kind of a
backup script that's attempting to lock the entire repository.  You
should delete them: as far as CVS is concerned, they're legitimate
repository directories, which is why it's checking them out.
