No, for all merges.

After the commit.

One of them will get a conflict when they commit, and will have to
sort it out with the other person.

That's because you have pretend to be a unix server on.  You won't get
mergepoints because Unix cvs doesn't support them.  Unless you're
using eclipse (which doesn't support mergepoints either) it's not a
good idea to have this option on.
