Today I did a lot (at least a couple) of cvs admin -kb on some graphic
files. Since I can't directly login to the server with ssh, I have to
depend on the support from where my repository is located.

So I got this (first time ever I see this):

$ cvs -q update -dP
cvs server: [03:37:36] waiting for cvs's lock in /usr/local/cvs/
^Ccvs [update aborted]: received interrupt signal

And I had to break with ctrl+C. Any idea how this can happen? It should
not happen I think - and annoying that I have to contact the
support-department. Perhaps suggestions on how to avoid this in the future?

This is not the same type of lock as you get with 'cvs admin -L'. These
are concurrent locks, used to prevent corruption if two people access
the repository at the same time. See for more

Ok, but the lock didn't disappear... Well. Guess that's just something unexplainable...
