2.0..41 has directory locks, although IIRC they should get
progressively released anyway so you wouldn't normally notice it, plus
they're selective and don't block all operations.
2.0.50 has much finer granularity locking and is much less likely to
hit the problem. Only the files that are being committed will be
locked so it's quite likely by the time your rtag gets around to
setting the tag then it'll be finished with (rtag itself doesn't
pre-lock the files like checkin does so it won't hold up any
