Did I mention how much I dislike CVS? We really need to have a
discussion about moving to git.
But for now, I searched and I found what I think is a lock sitting in
that directory from January of 2008. I would think that a three year
old stale lock file would have caused problems long before now, but I
guess nobody has tried to commit in that directory since 2003 or so.
Please let me know if this issue persists. I've looked for other
similar lockfiles throughout the tree but didn't find any.
