If so, maybe it'd be a good idea to ask the savannah people to change the
anonymous access so that it doesn't lock.  I've seen such "nobody's lock"
several times in the past (usually it's just transient: someone is in the
process of doing an anonymous checkout or update).

The downside of course would be that such an anonymous checkout may result in
an "inconsistent" state, although IIRC the potential inconsistencies aren't
very serious (i.e. it will never see an incomplete RCS file).
