intermittent cvs lock messages

I use
"Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.17 (client/server)"
via SSH on cygwin and linux.

During CVS commit, I often get this messages:

Message: [22:06:14] waiting for sds's lock in /cvsroot/clisp/clisp/tests

[note, "sds" is myself]

then, after a few minutes, commit succeeds.

I reported this to the repository maintainers and they said that there
are no lock files there:

it appears that the locks are created by my client during commit:
when I commit "foo", it locks "foo" and then tries to commit it and
runs into its own lock (which it then reports back to me in the above
message), and, after waiting for the lock to expire (in a few minutes),
it proceeds with the commit.
is this really the case?
