Ok, sorry to keep bothering you, but I still don't fully understand.
BTW, my repository consists of close to 50 subdirs - I just didn't want
to type 6-50 <g>

So, the rtag will lock in the top-level directory every time, unless I
am only locking in the lower directory??  And a checkout will do the
same, only with a readlock?

In this case simply do it as different rtag commands... there aren't too
many directories.  You might even be able to get away with

all -a a b/5 b/6 b/7 b/8 b/9

.. but I'm not sure whether you'll get the right directory structure if
you do that.


cvs rtag -b a b/5 b/6 b/7 b/8 b/9
