I am not sure if this helps or not but I have seen this.
Is there a virus scan program running?
I have seen the virus scan program have a hold on the file while scanning at the same time that CVS is executing the check-in and/or tag operation. At this time, CVS cannot work properly and reports the mysterious lock file (which doesn’t exist when you look for it after the fact)
I am not sure if this helps or is off the mark.

Please send the exact error message and the exact command including the CVSROOT along with the version of CVS you are using (you can get the version of CVS client and server from the command 'cvs ver').

Subject: waiting for lock, but no lock exists
I'm using CVS on an AFS mount, and running into this problem where it claims to be waiting for a lock by my own user. I look through the repo directly and see nothing that resembles a lock file. Any idea what could cause this or how to forcibly reset locks? Thanks
