Problem with losing watches.

We are currently running CVS version 1.11.20 on a linux server.  WinCVS
1.2 and 2.0 for clients and PowerBuilder/PushOk on top of that.

PushOk uses CVS watches to simulate locks on objects that are "Checked
Out".  Frequently when a intensive CVS command is executed, such as a
full check out, these watches are being lost.  The directory that these
are being lost on is large, containing about 3700 files.  So far I have
found the following:

- Only watches belonging to the user running the CVS command are being
- Watches are being lost without the running of PowerBuilder/PushOk.
- In one case, a watch was lost while running a cvs update on the
server itself.  No client involvement was needed.

I was wondering if anyone else has run into this watch loss problem and
if so, if a solution is available.

Thank you,
