You may just be lucky (or you haven't noticed the failures if you aren't keeping 
the cvs update logs).

There is a possible race condition with your code, since CVSNT still has the 
files locked until _after_ the loginfo returns.  If the "start" fires before the 
locks are released, the client cvs session may not be able to update the files, 
or may only update some of the files (I'm not sure if it will hang on the first 
lock or keep trying other files).  If you have a "sleep" equivalent in the batch 
file (even 2 seconds), you would be much more likely to have a safe experience.
