one of our developers connects via RAS and VPN to our company network to
update his cvs repositories. When he attempt to update a particular
repository he receives the following error:

cvs update -P -A -d (in directory C:\ProjectsJava\hlr-commons\)
cvs [server aborted]: cannot create_adm_p C:\CVS\LockDir/cvs-serv1756/UDA:
File exists

The strange thing is he has two more repositories which succeed in updating
and i cannot find a difference between them. All three repositories are in
the same cvsnt server (version 2.0.3), with the same LockDir using
LockServer and identical user rights.

Any hints ?


P.S.: If he updates on his company workstation, he has not problems. I tried
from my company workstation and had not problems, too.
