Commit locks all the directories you're committing files to for the
duration of the operation.  That is, if you're committing a/b/c/file1
and a/b/d/file2, CVS locks a/b/c and a/b/d -- it does not lock a, a/b,
or any other subdirectories of a/b.  Most, if not all, other operations
just lock one directory at a time.
