a commiting problem

From: Bob Towers
Subject: a commiting problem

I have a simple file, dtbsom.cxx.  After making some code changes to it i
decide to check it in, so i say:
cvs commit dtbsom.cxx
vi opens for me and I add my log message and go to save my changes in the
usual way, CTRL ZZ.(for vi)

The error message i receive is cryptic.

                Checking in dtbsom.cxx;
                /mounts/sun16_cvs/etc /etc /  < -- dtbsom.cxx
                new revision:1.2; previous revision: 1.1
                cvs [commit aborted]; could not open lock file
'/mounts/sun16_cvs/etc/etc/etc/,dtbsom.cxx,': File exists

Puzzled i go into the cvs repository and notice that in the corresponding
directory to my local directory is a file
by the name of: ",dtbsom.cxx,"   (notice the commas before and after the
I try to delete this file via rm -f dtbsom.cxx. But to no avail.  The file
magically reappears.  My attempts to commit the file are met with the same
error messages: 'could not open lock file' and 'file exists' even after I go
direct into the cvs repository to delete it.

If anyone can shed some light on this problem i would be very grateful.
