Try the commitifo script instead. It is there for you to have some way
of 'approving' a checkin before it happens for real. So CVS will wait
for the result of the commitinfo script processing before it proceeds
to commit. So I miagine the temp files will be stationary during this

(I wrote a similar reply from work, but somehow it did not make it to
the list.)
