cscvs doesn't have any means to detect this. What should happen is that
the next cache run will have an additional changeset with the later
portion of that developers changes. What *may* happen is that the
changes will be incorporated into the first changeset - and thus
potentially ignored by later totla runs etc.

The exact behaviour, and likelyhood of such a race will depend on CVS's
locking interaction with rlog.
