That's pretty much by design. Each checkout is completely independent of any other checkouts, and CVS does not make any attempt to coordinate between multiple checkouts. Thus, CVS has not forgotten anything - if your users go back to the first directory, they'll find that it is currently "Edit"ed by them.


I am not sure I agree with that.  The act of doing a fresh checkout of that
file (either via a new "checkout" or "update -C" or what-not) makes CVS forget that you are editing that file. "cvs editors" no longer returns you as an editor of that file (regardless of where you run it from - either the first or the second directory).

Personally, I consider that a bug. I believe I have even seen a patch submitted
to change this behavior thought I don't remember what the patch did.
