It should not worry you. cvs gets it correct. Read the manual on
how cvs does locking.

The existing locking system assumes that everything underneath is working and everything is allowed to run to normal completion. In the event of temporary failures such as network outages or power interruptions, or even if the user types ctrl-C, you see partial commits recorded in the repository after the customary clean-up of the locks.
