CVS is the *Concurrent* Versions System -- checkouts are not exclusive. 
Any number of people can have the same thing checked out at the same
time, so there's no reason to prevent one person from having something
checked out multiple times.  It can be handy if you're working on two
different changes to the same thing -- checking it out twice lets you
keep the changes separate from each other.
