I have a question concerning locks.

From time to time a dev try to commit a file and it just hang there.
When this happen, I look in the repo and I find that there is a lock.

Was the lock owned by the user-name of the dev who had a problem?

My question is: why does this randomly happen?

So basically I'm trying to figure out if this is a problem with CVS or


I think we need to know:
1) versions of CVS on server and several of the clients (or are they all running the same distribution?)? 2) the connection methods being used, and are you sure ALL of your developers using the same connection method? 3) Is anyone trying to use one of :fork:, :local: or bare connection methods to the repository, and the repository being on an NFS, SMB or other network file system?
