Please don't edit error messages -- quote them verbatim.  I'm reasonably
sure that should have been something more along the lines of
",myfilename" rather than "/myfilename", which would have allowed me to
answer your question without having to consult the source code.

Yes.  That error message occurs when there is an error writing the new
RCS file (the lock file is an RCS lock file, not a CVS lock file).  If
you have enough disk space to hold a second copy of the file, the most
likely problem is a quota of some sort.
