What's your setup? Do you have a repository prefix etc.?

2.0.28 is a lot more sensitive to path changes than the others... it 
shouldn't affect anything though as cvs make sure it passes the right 
stuff to lockserver.

Stopping the lockserver then running 'cvslock -test' will give you a 
running output of what's happening...  basically you're looking for
likes like:

(#0) New client tmh(localhost) root D:/repo
(#0) Lock request on D:/repo/bintest (Read Advisory Directory)
(#0) Lock request on D:/repo/bintest/c.exe,v (Read Full File)

The root in the first line should match exactly the start of the string 
in the lock request (2.0.28 lockserver is case sensitive - the cvs.exe 
makes the case translation automatically before passing the request up 
the server).
