Of course CVS can be safely used without locking -- the whole *point* of
CVS it to allow *concurrent* versioning.  I'm not sure what you mean by
an "unsuspected" merge -- CVS won't allow you to commit a file that
isn't up to date, you have to explicitly update first.  Updating may
merge changes, but it will tell you if it does.
