Unfortunately this appears to be a fundamental "useability
problem" (to be euphemistic) at the moment.  If your umask is
such that directory creation is non-group-writeable, then a
commit by anyone in the group will create a revision lock dir
which prevents commits from all others in the group until that
lock dir is made group writeable.

I'm having the same trouble, and this appears in my estimation to
be a rather serious bottleneck in arch's functionality at the
moment.  I am interested enough in a solution that I could
probably find an evening or two to spend working on it, if I
thought it would help.
