On the CVSNT project (free/GPL just like CVS, runs on Linux, Unix,
Windows etc) we discovered the same problem (as many have).

CVSNT implemented a lock server instead (again: on Linux/Unix/Windows
etc).  That way if the client bails for any reason (as PC's often do)
the server is always left clean.  

The lock server also allows us to do atomic checkout, service
broadcasts, repository synchronisation etc.
