AtomicCommits was always a hack (more to prove that it was possible
than anything else).  Since CVS is already atomic at the file level
(and checkouts are atomic using a separate mechanism) there's really
no point in using it in production.

As of .42 it's disabled anyway as it conflicts with the newer code &
murders concurrency.
