IMHO it is a design-flaw since I could easily be in a situation, where I
like to signal that I am working on a certain file, i.e. I use 
cvs watch on + cvs edit
but somebody asks me to export the module or test something where I need to
check out the same module in parallel to the first checkout.

I find this behaviour with CVS 1.12.13.

Is there any way to avoid this clearing of file locks?
