Does 'cvs watch off -a remove filename' work better? (I almost never use
the cvs watch command myself... so I may have the syntax wrong.)

That one is a very old version of CVS...

Hmmm... the editors and watches files should show up in the repository
itself as a CVS/fileattr where the CVS directory is a sibling of the
particular file that is having problems. Do you see such a file in your
repository? If so, what does it contain?

Is the CVSREAD environment varible set? Or, does the user have a
$HOME/.cvsrc file with a 'cvs -r' line in it?

If so, does using the command:

   cvs -w update filename

do anything for you?
