I still get a dangling lock once in a while, forcing me to bounce the server
to make it go away. I can't seem to figure out the conditions to reproduce

If I start to use the LockServer, will the server still work with older
clients or do I need to upgrade all the clients to the latest version.
Some people here are still using ntserver, and it is a bit of a pain to
have to go around and change everyone's cvsroot to use sspi (even with
the handy fixcvs.pl).
